These programs include our Fraternity’s Guide Right Youth Mentorship Programs, grades 6 through 12 , scholarships, and health and wellness programs, to name a few.
We recognize that the pressing issues facing our youth and communities in the 21st century can only be solved through a multi-faceted approach the includes mobilizing and leveraging the public sector, effective utilization of social media, implementing innovative ideas, influencing policies that promote positive change and building alliances with like minded organizations in all sectors of society who share the same vision and desire to make the world a greater place for all.
