OUR WORK IN ACTION
Take a look at the many ways West Palm Beach Alumni Kappa League is helping others and giving back to the community. Our photos and videos are a true testament to the immense impact our activities have on individuals and organizations.

BRIEF HISTORY OF KAPPA LEAGUE
Under the chairmanship of Mel Davis, the Los Angeles Alumni Chapter’s Social Action Program took the form of training activity for young men of the Alain Leroy Locke High School. Called the Kappa Instructional Leadership League, it was designed to help young men grow, receive, and develop their leadership talents in every phase of human endeavor. It provided both challenging and rewarding experiences, which richly enhanced their lives. Membership was open to male students from the tenth through the twelfth grades. The fraternity sought to help these young men to achieve worthy goals for themselves and make constructive contributions to their community when leadership roles become the responsibility.
Kappa League was founded on Thursday, February 12, 1969, by the Los Angeles Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., at Alain LeRoy Locke High School. Kappa League was adopted by the Grand Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. at the 56th Grand Chapter which was held August 12-15, 1970. The founders of the Kappa Instructional Leadership League were Mel L. Davis an Elder Watson Diggs Awardee and Edgar H. Bishop.
Kappa League is a program for the educational, occupational and social guidance of male students in grades 6th-12th. The nucleus and primary focus of the Kappa League revolves around the "Five Phases" which are:
1) Self-IdentityDiscipline, Assurance, Awareness, and Appearance

3) CompetitionPolitics, Career Advancement, and Sports
4) SocialReligion, The Arts, Entertainment, Conversation/Communication, and Etiquette/Manners

Other objectives of the Kappa League may be summarized as follows:

How We Do It...
TREAT HER LIKE A LADY
This annual event, our goal is to promote and teach our young men how to be a gentleman. We aim to bring back the fundamental principles and practices chivalry. This slowly dying art and way of life, needs to be instilled as well as reinforced in our young men now more than ever.
With encouragement and the willingness to learn, our young men can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential.
