Guide Right


Early in the 20th century, African-Americans were socially ostracized throughout the United States, especially on the campus of Indiana University in the Midwest. This unacceptable behavior caused 10 African-American students to unite and confront this injustice. It was the vision of these astute men which enabled them to form Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Incorporated on January 5, 1911on the campus of Indiana University. The Founders of the fraternity sought a formula that would immediately raise the consciousness of African-American collegians and stimulate them to accomplishments higher than they might have imagined. Fashioning Achievement as its fundamental purpose, Kappa Alpha Psi began uniting college men of culture, patriotism, and honor in a bond of fraternity. Chapters spread in succession throughout the Midwest and eventually throughout the country and worldwide. Today there are more than 500 chapters with more than 100,000 members located throughout the United States with foreign chapters in the United Kingdom, Korea, Japan, Germany, Bermuda, and the Bahamas.

The Guide Right Program, conceived in 1922, is the most important national social outreach program of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. The purposes of the Guide Right Service Program are to: (1) place the training, experience, and friendly interest of successful men at the disposal of youth needing inspiration and counsel regarding their choices of a life’s career; and (2) to arouse the interest of the entire community in the problems of youth as they seek to realize lives of usefulness. Today, National Guide Right programs provide programming, role models, mentors, and financial assistance for at risk youth in communities throughout the country.  READ MORE
