Alphas Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of America Program

Brothers Jamelle Nelson and Byron Mobley

Brothers Phil Cotton and Damon Oliver

On Feb 21, 2015, Brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha’s Beta Psi Lambda Chapter (BPL) graciously accepted a personal invitation to attend an exclusive reception calling for men of color to support Big Brother Big Sister (BBBS) programs that provide individualized mentoring to children facing adversity!! The reception was well attended by several local community leaders and the men of BPL represented the fraternity with style and grace!!!

As part of the national My Brother’s Keeper initiative launched in 2014 by President Obama, the BBBS Los Angeles Chapter put out a call to action to men of color throughout Los Angeles to become mentors for the over 100 youth between the ages of 6-18 that are currently on their wait list.

The Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America program was implemented during the fraternity's 1990 General Convention. The two organizations signed an agreement to assist each other in reaching their goals of working toward the positive development of African-American youth and empowering their families and communities. The focus of this partnership is to:

•Increase the number of African-American children exposed to positive African-American adult role models;
•Increase minority representation on local Big Brothers/Big Sisters' Board of Directors;
•Increase positive perceptions of both organizations in the African-American community;
•Expose African-American boys of Big Brothers/Big Sisters programs to positive Alpha role models and the programs of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc.
