Conceived in 1922 by Leon W. Stewart, and suggested at the twelfth Grand Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi, Guide Right became the fraternity’s national service program. Jesse Jerome Peters, later to become the eighth Grand Polemarch, was chairman of the committee, during the administration of W. Ellis Stewart as Grand Polemarch.  That insured adoption of the Program as the Fraternity’s National Service Project.

The purposes of the Guide Right Service Program are to place the training, experience, and friendly interest of successful men, at the disposal of youth needing inspiration and counsel regarding their choice of a life’s career, while the community is made aware of the problems that may be encountered as these youth seek to realize lives of usefulness.

This program was immediately adopted at the local level to the extent of providing scholarship to needy and talented participants. The 12th Grand Chapter adopted Guide Right as the national service program of the Fraternity.

The objectives of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity’s Guide Right Social Action Program are to assist High School level student in the following areas:

The selection of courses leading to vocations compatible with their aptitudes and personalities.
In acquiring employment and maintaining successful progress in their chosen fields.  In addition, the program assists parents in the development of their children by providing parents the opportunity to discuss problems regarding their child’s future with individuals who have achieved success in the chosen professions and vocations.

Guide Right encompasses many of our youth oriented programs such as mentoring, college preparatory programs, and tutoring. However, the Flagship Initiative of the Guide Right Service Program is the Kappa Leadership Development League.
