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 League

The mission of the Kappa League Program is to become a mentoring institution that creates the next generation of America's influential, inspirational, and transformational leaders of the 21st Century.

For all members, Kappa league Program to graduate and attend a 4-year post secondary institution.

To create a new generation of dynamic, influential and inspirational young leaders that will make an impact in all five sectors of society throughout the world (see Academic Strand Selection).

For the Kappa League to be used as an instrument to create an environment of positive peer pressure through academic and community service led program.

Our Kappa League program was designed in direct response to the continuing crisis in the African-American community regarding our younger males. The program addresses some of those problems facing the African American youth through a variety of seminars, lectures, field trips and workshops which are all geared toward improving such characteristics as the student's cultural awareness/diversity, academic achievement, emotional, mental, and physical development.
