A DEEP HISTORY IN TAKING ACTION.
The March of Dimes and Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. began collaboratively implementing Project Alpha in 1980. Designed to provide young men with current and accurate information about teen pregnancy prevention, Project Alpha consists of a series of workshops and informational sessions conducted by Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity brothers.
The three goals of Project Alpha programs are:
Sharing Knowledge by combating ignorance and fear with factual information
Changing Attitudes by providing motivation toward positive changes in sexual behavior
Providing Skills by creating a sense of empowerment and self-esteem
Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. chapters all across the country worked with their local March of Dimes to implement Project Alpha programs. Project Alpha week is the first week of November. This program reaches more than 25,000 young men every year.
In addition to Project Alpha, March for Babies® serves as an example of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. - March of Dimes partnership. In the last 5 years, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity brothers have raised over $1 million for the March of Dimes.
Delta Alpha Lambda Chapter stands with March of Dimes to fight for the health of all moms and babies. Families in our community and across the country are touched by the fundraising we do, and we won’t stop until we reach our goal of building a better future for us all. We’re proud to help provide resources and programs to educate and empower moms so every baby can have the best possible start. Each year we donate to March for Babies because of that.
