Alpha Boys Institute
Beta Eta Lambda Scholarship Foundation of Alpha Phi Alpha
Award Date: June 1, 2022
The Beta Eta Lambda Scholarship Foundation of Alpha Phi Alpha provides leadership and life skill training for targeted “underperforming” middle school students in metro Oklahoma City. Their goal is to improve high school drop-out and incarceration rates at city schools identified as having the highest need. The Alpha Boys Institute was launched with the mission to significantly improve outcomes for this target population. Alpha Boys has since expanded in three ways: 1) teach youth members how to behave when interacting with law enforcement, 2) introduce youth members to entrepreneurship, and 3) tutor youth members in Math. In addition, Alpha Boys provides life skills programs to help youth members better prepare for independence as they enter adulthood.
