Since 1968, the Los Angeles Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc sponsored a program known as “Kappa Instructional Leadership League” (Kappa League). Kappa League is a program for the educational, occupational and social guidance of male high school level students.
The Kappa League began at Alain Leroy Locke High School in Los Angeles and has grown nationwide across all of Kappa Alpha Psi. It is designed to help young men grow and develop their leadership skills in every phase of human endeavor. Through club-oriented activities, the membership undertook challenges and rewarding experiences which lead to the achievement of worthy academic, professional, and vocational goals. Additionally, the Kappa League assisted in the development of outstanding social skills.
The nucleus and primary focus of the Kappa League revolves around the “Five Phases” which are:
1. Self Identify – discipline, assurance, awareness and appearance
2. Training – academic, career choice, preparation and organization
3. Competition – politics, career advancement and sports
4. Social – communication, etiquette and manners
5. Health Education – physical, sex and drug education, as well as health and safety
Through the years thousands of Kappa Leaguers have participated in community service events such as clothing drives for the Los Angeles Mission, distributing food baskets at Thanksgiving for the Sweet Alice Foundation of Watts, Christmas book and toy drives, and a starring role in the annual Martin Luther King Day Parade.
The culmination of each years Kappa League is the annual “Presents” where the participants clad formally in tuxedos showcase what they have learned during the year including intricate dance steps performed with escorts.
The Kappa League meets on Sundays on a bi-monthly basis at the Kappa House located 1846 South Crenshaw Boulevard, Los Angeles, California. Membership is open to young men of high school age between the grades of 9-12.
