The Toledo, Ohio chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Alpha Xi Lambda chapter, continues our efforts to connect fraternity members and other adult male role models with teenage African--American males at Robinson Junior High School. Six sessions are held during the school year. These sessions go beyond the national topic of teenage pregnancy. Other topics included career exploration and crime prevention.
Project Alpha is a national program, designed to help young men make better and more informed choices about their sexual behavior. Since 1980, Alpha Phi Alpha and the March of Dimes have been working together to help young men make the right decisions about complex issues surrounding sex. This is a unique mentoring program, which offers African-American men as positive role models for the next generation.
