Guide Right & Kappa League

Two of Kappa Alpha Psi's most established social action programs--Guide Right and Kappa League--trace their roots to the Western Province.

Guide Right is a program for the educational and occupational guidance of youth, primarily inspirational and informational in character; its reach extends to high schools and colleges alike. 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 Kappa League, officially known as the Kappa Leadership Development League.
