Alpha Phi Alpha is a fraternity that promotes brotherhood, leadership development and scholarly achievement, and chapters across the country are engaged in providing services and advocacy for their communities.  The “Go To High School, Go To College” project started almost a century ago and statistics prove the initiative’s importance in the success of young African-American men who have participated. 

Now in its second decade of service, the Jubilee Family Center offers programs that target at-risk youth and their families to help them become more self-sufficient and reach higher levels of personal achievement.  The Center provides year-round programming, with offerings in educational enrichment and academic assistance, athletics, as well as technical/vocational awareness and training.  In the year that ended in June, Jubilee programs reached some 7000 families and youth.
