Since its reestablishment in 2002, Kappa Xi Lambda has rebranded itself as the Wall Street Alphas. The brothers have worked diligently to support the national programs that include: Go to High School, Go to College; A Voteless People Is a Hopeless People; Big Brothers, Big Sisters, and the March of Dimes. In addition to these programs, the brothers have developed programs such as the Alpha Gents Academy and its Alphas Against AIDS initiative.
The Alpha Gents is a cornerstone program of Kappa Xi Lambda that mentors young men from the inner-city of New York City and its boroughs. Equipped with the Project Alpha curriculum, Alpha Gent mentors are teaching young men how to become useful and responsible young adults. Funded largely through the Wall Street Alphas Charitable Foundation, this program has prepared many of its mentees for college life inclusive with scholarship benefits.
Brothers of KXL, run the gamut in the types of charities that they individually support in the Greater New York City area. However, on an ongoing basis, the brothers can be seen supporting the March for Dimes, AIDS Walk NYC, Christmas Toy Drives, and College preparation and awareness opportunities for teens.
Black History Month
Although Black History Month is only 28 days in the month of February, the brothers of KXL are always mindful of highlighting the achievements of Black men and women. During the month of February, the Chapter uses the opportunity to educate the at-large community even more about the achievements through joint collaboration with the undergraduate chapters and other social and Greek letter organizations.
The brothers work hard all year long in their service to the community but also great very eventful social programming as well. Our annual SIP wine tasting event is one of our most anticipated events in the City. To learn more about opportunities to interact and socialize with our brothers, please check our events page.
