The fraternity and the CHSD170 school partner in the "Guide Right Program" promoting positive behaviors in the school setting
Over the past 25 years, the Chicago Heights Alumni Chapter has awarded one hundred seventy scholarships averaging $2,500.00 to African American male students residing in South Suburban Chicago and attending one of its population high schools.
The Chicago Heights Alumni Foundation established in 2008 as the philanthropic arm of the Chicago Heights Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity. It's a separate non-profit, tax-exempt, publicly supported organization - 501 (c) (3), non-profit, charitable organization.
The Foundation's fundraising efforts, which consist of The George C. Cherry, III Annual Memorial Scholarship Golf Outing, and Annual Scholarship Theater Party, has allowed for an increase in the number scholarships and monetary awards, as well as, support for our Guide Right program. Guide Right is our male mentoring program which supports academic achievement for 6th thru 12th grade college-bound young African-American male students in our service area. The chapter has also assisted in establishing a female mentoring group at it’s adopted school – Jefferson Elementary in Chicago Heights, IL. The joint effort and focus between Chicago Heights Alumni and the “Foundation” will position us to meet our goal.
