Alpha Phi Alpha members work to prevent teen pregnancies through annual initiative
The men of Alpha Phi Alpha, Fraternity, INC., Gamma Omicron Lambda Chapter, are teaching young men how to prevent teen pregnancies.
Each year, through their initiative, Project Alpha, they take about 30 middle school aged boys on a weekend retreat.
On Friday afternoon, the middle schoolers filed into the E. James Grant Family Center before they made their trip to the Kolomoki Mounds State Park.
The project director, Dr. William Berry, says, "It's important that we reach them before they get misconceptions or attitudes that may not correct."
