Guide Right Participant Units

  • Kappa Kids (Grades 4-5) The overall objective for Kappa Kids is to mentor and provide guidance for their lives.  The direction of the leadership provides, in some cases, role models of career men, community service and access to experiences that these young men may be lacking.  The program is one of fun with direction and experiences with the projection to share what it is to become a man in our society.
  • Kappa Knights (Grades 6-8) The overall objective for Kappa Knights is to mentor the young men, and to begin to bridge the transition into growing toward a teenager who accepts responsibilities and encourages success as he transitions into society.  As the challenge of transitioning through the teen years continues to be one that the clientele may experience in the community, leadership in the Guide Right Program wants to ensure support and foundation during this time for parent(s), guardians and trusted leaders.  Kappa Knights are indeed a key foundation of the Guide Right groups because these are the leaders of of the program in the next couple of years.  A key part of the program is to encourage commitment and self-awareness for future successes.  While leaders do encourage friendliness and frivolity, the young men are required to commit to study and teamwork.  
  • Kappa League (Grades 9-12)  The overall objective for Kappa League is to mentor the young men, provide awareness of their recognition of place as a teenage leader, and to accept the challenge to commit to post-secondary education opportunities, and leadership in the Guide Right Program.  This group learns through application how to effectively participant in team building, participate in group organizational dynamics, and the impact of preparation on performance.  The Guide Right Program leadership uses advisory input in program activities, organization and selection of projects.  The Program promotes these individuals to seek higher education opportunities, transition to college programs and support their personal endeavors in areas of their interests.  The program encourages learning applicable skills in computing, science, technology, medicine, business, and other professional development areas, such as, resume prep, budgeting, and life interpersonal skills.
