Law Day March Mountain High School.

CORONA, CA- This past Saturday (December 7), the Riverside Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., held a courthouse field trip day for its Kappa Law Day. The fraternity took a group of 30 youth from Moreno Valley’s March Mountain High School to the Corona courtroom of Judge Eric Isaac, member of the alumni fraternity group and a mentor in its Guide Right Program. The Chapter’s Guide Right Program focuses on getting the students to select a field trip that most closely matches their career goals. The Guide Right Program exposes students to mentoring and professional fields that the students will be considering in the next few years. Members of the Chapter are given the assignment to present information about their fields, which include  business, law, medicine, armed services, education, law enforcement and pharmacy.
The field trips allow the students to witness the day-to-day activities involved in the selected career. The Chapter thanks Brother Isaac, Brother Edward Moore, Jr., VADM USN (ret) and Julie Alexander and Jamie Bernard teachers at March Mountain High School. The National Education Association and Kappa Alpha Psi are nationally recognized partners to support Priority Schools.

RIVERSIDE, CA- The Brothers of the Riverside Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. for the seventh year co-sponsored the 2013 Thanksgiving Giveaway of the Riverside Fair Housing Council. The Chapter’s Diamond Foundation was able to significantly increase its financial support this year at a time when the number of people served also increased. Rose Mayes, Fair Housing Executive Director, expressed her concern. “We thought we had received only enough funding to reach 100 people so the list of families was closed; however, with the increased funding from sponsors like Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, we reopened the list to serve some 300 people. Additionally, any leftover resources will go to the Community Settlement Association in support of their holiday gift baskets for families in need.”
