St. Jude - Built on a promise

St. Jude owes its existence to a promise made by a struggling entertainer, Danny Thomas.  Turning to St. Jude Thaddeus, the patron saint of hopeless causes, Thomas vowed:  “Show me my way in life and I will build you a shrine.”

That simple promise and his later success as a television star led Thomas to found St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  St. Jude, located in Memphis, Tennessee, opened its doors in 1962 and is now recognized as one of the world’s premier centers for research and treatment of catastrophic illnesses in children.  Working together our physicians and scientists have pioneered treatments that have helped push the overall survival rate for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent in 1962 to more than 70 percent today.  The survival rate for the most common form of childhood cancer, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, has risen from 4 percent in 1962 to 94 percent today.

All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treated regardless of race, color, creed or their ability to pay.  St. Jude is the only pediatric research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay.  St. Jude also provides transportation costs and local living expenses during treatment for the patient and one parent, and assists with meal costs while the family is in Memphis.

With operating costs at more than $1.2 million a day, the children and families of St. Jude need your help.  We invite you to become a partner in our quest to eradicate catastrophic childhood diseases.

The National Service Program

Guide Right is a program for the educational and occupational guidance of youth, primarily inspirational and informational in character. Its reach extends to high schools and colleges alike. In the latter, giving due attention to the needs of undergraduate Brothers.  Conceived in 1922 by Leon W. Stewart, and suggested at the twelfth Grand Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi, Guide Right became the fraternity's national service program. Jesse Jerome Peters, later to become the eighth Grand Polemarch, was chairman of the committee, during the administration of W. Ellis Stewart as Grand Polemarch.That insured adoption of the Program as the Fraternity's National Service Project.

The purposes of the Guide Right Service Program are to place the training, experience, and friendly interest of successful men, at the disposal of youth needing inspiration and counsel regarding their choice of a life's career, while the community is made aware of the problems that may be encountered as these youth seek to realize lives of usefulness

Guide Right encompasses many of our youth oriented programs such as mentoring, college preparatory programs, and tutoring.   However, the Flagship Initiative of the Guide Right Service Program is the Kappa Leadership Development League.

Kappa Alpha Psi – Commitment to community

With more than 721 alumni and collegiate chapters in the United States and across the world, Kappa Alpha Psi is recognized as a major contributor to the advancement of the communities in which we serve.

In July of 2005, Kappa Alpha Psi further demonstrated its commitment to the community by partnering with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at the 76th Grand Chapter in St. Louis.  Please join us as we aim to raise funds for the children battling sickle cell, cancers and other catastrophic diseases at St. Jude.

The Guide Right/Kappa League program demonstrates our commitment to our youth.  We need to be the community agent of change through mentorship and leadership development of every young man we reach.  Positively shaping a young man’s life today is an investment into tomorrow.

Kappa Alpha Psi believes in meeting all challenges head-on.  We are harkening to the call of The Prince Georges County Family Justice Center to take our place in the worthwhile push against domestic violence.  Join us in raising funds to ensure the center has all of the necessary resources that advance the cause.
