The Fraternity's National Programs and their areas of focus are presented in this section. National Programs are programs/projects that have been adopted by the General Convention and mandated for implementation by all Chapters. Our national programs are:

1) Go-to-High School, Go-to-College
2) Project Alpha
3) A Voteless People is a Hopeless People

Go-To-High School,

The "Go-to-High School, Go-to-College" program, established in 1919, concentrates on the importance of completing secondary and collegiate education as a road to advancement. Statistics prove the value of this impetus in making the difference in the success of young African-American men, 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 receive information and learn strategies that facilitate success. Alpha men provide youth participants with excellent role models to emulate.

Project Alpha
Project Alpha is a collaborative effort between the March of Dimes Foundation and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. The program was developed to increase the knowledge of African-American males about the consequences of teenage pregnancy from male perspective. The program seeks to assist young men in developing an understanding of their role in preventing untimely pregnancies through responsible attitudes and behaviors.

A Voteless People is a
Hopeless People

"A Voteless People is a Hopeless People" was initiated as a National Program of the Fraternity in the 1930s when many African-Americans had the right to vote but were prevented from voting because of poll taxes, threats of reprisal, and lack of education about the voting process. Voter education and registration has remained a dominant focus of the outreach activity for over 65 years. In the 1990s, the focus has shifted to include political awareness and empowerment, delivered most frequently through town meetings and candidate forums.
