In as much as college youths must assume the burdens of leadership after graduation, it is important that they acquire the social graces and embellishments that fit them for participation in the society of cultivated men.
— Elder Watson Diggs



The basic objectives of Guide Right may be summarized as follows:
1. To inspire service in the public interest through the cultural enrichment and character development of African American males of high school age.
2. To develop leadership skills while monitoring, encouraging and rewarding outstanding academic performance.
3. To refine self-images, self-esteem, social skills and environmental awareness.
4. To assist parents in the handling of their children by giving them opportunities to talk over problems with those who know and are successful in their chosen vocations.
5. To afford the less fortunate youths a respite from the drudgery of the streets through sponsored entertainment and cultural enrichment.
6. To inform youth of the value of higher education, assistance available for continued educational pursuits, scholarships, loans, professional counseling and fellowships. Kappa Alpha Psi's commitment to young people is well established and our Guide Right efforts, both individual and collective, can continue to serve as a mechanism to "inspire service in the public interest".



The Kappa League was founded in 1970 Los Angeles and services young men in high schools in the Metro Detroit area. The program is based upon 5 Phases: Self-identity, training, Competition, Social and Health Education. Throughout the year the young men participate in numerous activities centered upon one or more phases and begin to further develop their leadership skills through a myriad of events and opportunities.
