Alpha Esquires Program Application

Mission

The Alpha Esquires of Indianapolis Youth Mentoring Program cultivates Leadership, Scholarship, and Brotherhood amongst adolescent boys through academic, social, career, and community service programming.

Brotherhood

We are not looking for participants who are not interested in serving the communities in which they live.

We are not seeking participants who do not take academic excellence seriously.

Most importantly, we are not interested in individuals whose actions will put Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated, Alpha Esquires of Indianapolis Youth Mentoring Program, or their personal brands and well-being at risk.

This ship does not need anchors.

Requirements

  1. Participants in the Alpha Esquires program are to attend at least five (5) workshops throughout the program year, and two (2) outside events. Attendance is taken at each workshop and event. Participation at the program workshops ensures quality development in the oaths of Leadership, Scholarship, and Brotherhood. Participation at events develops networking and communication skills. If a participant knows he is unable to attend workshops or scheduled events, he should notify the alphaesquiresindy@gmail.com account at least 24 hours prior to said workshop or event.
  2. Participants in the Alpha Esquires of Indianapolis Youth Mentoring Program will receive a program jacket, and are eligible to earn other program apparel throughout the year. The program fee for the 2020-2021 Program Year is $50, payable to the Iota Lambda Chapter PayPal account: apaiotalambda@gmail.com.
  3. Each Esquire will need to participate in a program-wide fundraiser to cover the cost of his participation on the Washington DC trip in the summer of 2024.
