The objective of the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti-Inkster Kappa Leadership Development League (AAYI Kappa League) is to promote and develop the leadership potential of its members through participation in club-oriented activities and motivation to raise their aspiration level.
Kappa League members participate in activities and develop projects that will expose them to planning, implementing and discussing ideas that stimulate good leadership characteristics. All activities and programs are drawn from one or more of the Kappa League’s Seven Phases that include:
- Phase I - Self Identity/ Purpose
- Phase II -Training
- Phase III - Competition
- Phase IV - Social
- Phase V - Health Education
- Phase VI - Economic Empowerment & Education
- Phase VII - College & Career
Who Can Join
We invite young men living in Washtenaw and Wayne counties; and entering high school grades 9-11 who seek to achieve the objectives described above. Members will be asked to:
- Actively participate in monthly meetings, community service, and program assignments.
- Maintain at least a 2.5 GPA in each semester they participate; and
- commit to following Kappa League guidelines for behavior and conduct.
Cost of Membership
Most of the costs of the Kappa League are covered through an annual fund drive conducted by the program and a budget that is allocated by the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti-Inkster Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi, Inc. There is also an annual membership fee that covers the cost of our standard uniform. This cost is being finalized as the uniform is currently being revised. Membership fee scholarships are available if needed.
How to Join
Prospective members must register for and attend our New Member Information Session (link below). That session provides a review of the Kappa League program and a chance to meet and ask questions of Kappa League Advisors and current members. Interested candidates may then submit a full application to the program which will be followed by an individual interview. The application and interview period will run from the Information Session until June 1.
