Mentorship is an extremely important element in today’s society. Our future depends on the caliber of young men and women we are developing. It begins with us!

The Fort Lauderdale Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., along with State Representative Bobby B. DuBose, illustrated how impactful we can be in the lives of our youth, at the 2015 Annual End of the Year Kappa League Luncheon.

Kappa League is a “Guide Right” program developed by the men of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. years ago to help develop our boys into mature, successful, young men. The luncheon commemorated a year’s worth of work as the Fort Lauderdale Alumni Kappa League ran the entire program from start to finish.

These bright young men honored two distinct local chapters: the Zeta Rho Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and the Broward Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Both organizations were honored for their 60 years of service to our com-munity. The Kappa Leaguers didn’t stop there as they per-formed a special presentation honoring their “Sheroes”; women who have sacrificed tremendously to help them become who they are today.

Brother Calvin Hughes, Channel Local 10 News anchor, the keynote speaker for the event, was the only part of the program not done by a Kappa Leaguer. He inspired the audience as he told his story of how he transformed into the well-spoken successful man that he is today.

At the conclusion of this momentous event, our eighth graders (Jr. Kappa Leaguers) were presented with their blazers and our seniors, all of whom are graduating and going to college, received gifts and scholarships.

The Fort Lauderdale Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., along with State Representative Bobby DuBose, believe that it is important to take the time to men-tor and guide our youth as someone always had the time to mentor and guide us.
