The Delta Sigma Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. will present Project Alpha to young men of the Ivy Center for Education College Readiness program.


The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 17, at Faith Presbyterian Church, 913 University Drive. Young men in 7–12th grades in Jefferson County are encouraged to attend. Young men will meet in the sanctuary and the young women will meet in the fellowship hall.


This year’s theme is the Necktie Connection. Project Alpha is a seminar program designed to provide young men with fundamental knowledge about decision making skills, education-professionalism, relationships and networking, according to a news release.


“The three goals of the program are to share knowledge by combating ignorance and fear with factual information, change attitudes by providing motivation toward positive behaviors and relationships, provide skills by creating a sense of empowerment and self-esteem,” according to the release.


Project Alpha - Month has been a target program of Alpha Phi Alpha on a national level since October 2000. The Ivy Center for Education is a program established in 2004 to promote “Excellence in Academics and Good Character.”
