On March 2nd, 2019, the Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. will be hosting our "Go to High School, Go to College" program where we will be inviting young men and women out for a series of breakout sessions talking to them about the importance of furthering their education and other current and important topics as well.

 

Go to High School, Go to College is a National Program of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated which energizes the need for group discussions on being successful and the challenges of attending college. During our session, we will focus on the transition from high school to college, the college application process, the college admissions process, the FASFA process, scholarship opportunities, ACT/SAT information, and more. There will also be a chance for the young men and women to ask questions to presenters, whom have graduated from college and are successful in their careers.

 

At the conclusion of this event, we will be presenting the “Onward & Upward Scholarship” which is a $1,000 scholarship to a student in attendance of this event. Please see scholarship flyer attached to this email for details.

 

Our committee would like to meet with you or a representative for 10-15 minutes to further explain our program and possibly post flyers inside of your building.

Description: The "Go-to-High-School, Go-to-College" program, established in 1922, concentrates on the importance of completing secondary and collegiate education as a road to advancement. Statistics prove the value of this extra impetus in making the difference in the success of young African-American men, and women, given that school completion is the single best predictor of future economic success. Through the Go-to-High-School, Go-to-College educational initiative, young men, and women receive information and learn strategies that facilitate success. Alpha men provide youth participants with excellent role models to emulate.
