About the event

For just over fifty years the Hampton-Newport News (VA) Alumni Chapter has embodied, and implemented the objectives of GUIDE RIGHT, the international service program of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. The Chapter’s commitment to young people is well established, and its collective Guide Right efforts will continue to serve as a mechanism to inspire service in the public interest.

The Chapter’s inaugural meeting of its Kappa Youth Leadership League was held on Sunday, September 16, 1973. Kappa League, as it is more commonly referred, is the social implementation of GUIDE RIGHT. The conclusion of its organizational development was a formal chartering ceremony held on May 15,1974, at the St. Paul AME Church in Newport News, VA. Since those humble beginnings; for 50 consecutive years, hundreds of young men have taken advantage of this life-enhancing resource.

In addition to the maintenance of its Kappa Youth and Achievement League mentoring program,

the chapter has provided administrative support and oversight for a baseball team, four youth football teams, four cheer squads and eight basketball teams. As currently structured, the Chapter’s Guide Right Program annually provides mentoring and wholesome recreational activities for over 200 program participants.

Please join the officers and members of the Hampton-Newport News (VA) Alumni Chapter as we celebrate this legacy of youth advocacy, and our Guide Right Youth Program’s 50-year milestone. The celebration will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2024 during a gala “Black Tie” banquet at the Hampton Convention Center. Tickets are $75.00 each at the link below
