About Kappa Alpha Psi
Founded in 1911, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. has more than 150,000 members worldwide and 700-plus college and alumni chapters. Local chapters include Orlando Alumni, established in 1947, and Winter Park Alumni, in 1992. The undergraduate Lambda Omega Chapter at the University of Central Florida received its charter in 1983.
Nationally, the fraternity is highly regarded for wide variety of programs that benefit the communities of its members. The services aid children, families and others through the provision of economic services, youth guidance and merit, need-based college scholarships and much more.
Initiatives among the Central Florida chapters have ranged from Orlando Alumni’s free money management/debt eliminator workshops to Winter Park Alumni’s computer camp for middle and high school students. Both chapters annually award scholarships to college-bound seniors and sponsor Kappa League youth mentorship programs as part of the fraternity’s national Guide Right initiative.
