Alpha Esquire Youth Group

Leaders of Tomorrow

Among its many accomplishments, the chapter and foundation have contributed over $100,000 in scholarships to African-American high school students.

The Alpha Esquire Youth Group was established in 2002 as a mentoring program for youth ages 8-18 years of age and has provided support to over 250 young men. The youth group provides a conduit for the chapters’ Project Alpha, Go To High School Go To College, and other youth development activities.

Since its inception, the program has sent over 80 young men to college.

MLK Blood Drive

Annually on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Delta Gamma Lambda participates in a community parade that celebrates that legacy of our dear brother. The festivities culminate with blood drive where the brothers of DGL partner with the Hoxworth Blood Center to establish a goal of recruiting 100 donors.

Since 2007, DGL has partnered with Hoxworth Blood Center to help encourage the general public to donate blood to help those in need. In addition, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center serves as the gathering location and offers free admission.

Habitat for Humanity

Cincinnati Alpha’s teamed up with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Cincinnati (HFHGC), in November 2018, to give back to the community!  We helped to continue the building of a home for a deserving family in the Cincinnati Community.


Go To High School, Go To College

The “Go-to-High-School, Go-to-College” program, established in 1922, concentrates on the importance of completing secondary and collegiate education as a road to advancement. Statistics prove the value of this extra impetus in making the difference in the success of young African-American men, and women, given that school completion is the single best predictor of future economic success. Through the Go-to-High-School, Go-to-College educational initiative, young men, and women receive information and learn strategies that facilitate success. Alpha men provide youth participants with excellent role models to emulate.
