Program Target I
Educational Enrichment  
Members will engage in the sorority’s signature youth enrichment program, ASCENDSM with efforts designed to motivate, engage and assist high school students in reaching their maximum potential. ASCENDSM will focus on Achievement, Self-Awareness, Communication, Engagement, Networking and Developmental Skills. Students in the ASCENDSM Program will have an opportunity to receive academic enrichment and life skills training to support their journey to college or vocational employment.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority will promote the learning process by providing substantial support to students through AKA One Million BackpacksSM. Members will donate and distribute one million backpacks and related school supplies to students over the four year period.

Support of Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) will be a priority as Alpha Kappa Alpha launches a national campaign, Think HBCUSM to highlight HBCUs and their contribution to the sorority and society. Through education, engagement and advocacy, HBCUs will be showcased as critical venue for moving students to and through college.
