Sunday of Hope

  • Sunday of Hope is a charitable initiative benefiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital sponsored by the men of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. This program was adopted by the Kappa Alpha Psi Grand Board to give members across the country a way to unify their efforts in support of St. Jude.
  • The Sunday of Hope program is implemented in churches across the country. Kappa members work with local churches to identify one Sunday during the months of January through April to host a Sunday of Hope event. Kappa members will address the congregation to spread awareness about the mission of St. Jude and ask for financial donations to help St. Jude continue their efforts to help treat the many sick children afflicted with cancer.
  • Over the past three years led by the efforts of Brother Barkese Dalton, NEP Social Action Chairman, Queens Alumni Chapter has graciously answered this call to service and have contributed to the success of this wonderful program. During this time our efforts at 3 host churches, Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church, Parish of Grace Church and Ebenezer Baptist Church have resulted in donations of over $6000.

Public Colors

  • Public Colors is a non-profit youth based organization whose mission is to use the painting process to re-engage underserved students in their education, community, and ultimately transform them in productive members of society. Queens Alumni volunteers with Public Colors to paint schools in Queens.
  • The program takes students from the schools they are painting and teaches them the fundamentals of commercial painting process including sanding, priming, and color selection.  Along with the volunteers, students paint the school resulting in a more positive and vibrant learning environment. Some students enter the program on a more permanent basis and have access to tutoring, attend career workshops, and can even earn income for their painting services.
  • The Brothers have the opportunity to informally mentor children ranging from ages 13 – 17 about their own careers, educational background and have the opportunity to learn about the children’s own aspirations.


  • The Queens Alumni Chapter participates in the New York City Department of Transportation's Adopt-a-Highway beautification program. Chapter Brothers volunteer monthly to maintain an area in Laurelton by digging up weeds, tilling soil, planting flowers and laying down mulch and top soil.
  • Realizing that there are huge shoes to fill, the lady that maintained the area for the 6 previously years received several awards for her work we rolled up our sleeves, put on our gloves and got right to work!


  • Members of the Queens Alumni Chapter along with friends and family take part in New York City’s annual walk to help individuals in the community struggling with HIV/AIDS.
  • It is a 10 kilometer walkathon that benefits 60 + organizations in the Tri-State that are dedicated to providing equal access to healthcare, prevention education, and advocacy to their clients regardless of their ability to pay.
