Brothers Participate in March of Dimes - March for Babies

4/28/24

The March of Dimes - March for Babies which was held on Sunday, April 28, 2024 at the Hunt Valley Towne
Centre at 118 Shawan Road, Cockeysville, MD 21030.

The opening ceremony took place at
8:45a featuring our Show Of Hands Ceremony, which was a touching moment. We heard from families
who lost babies, who had premature babies, and families who cannot have children. After we heard from
the speakers, everyone took a moment of silence for those battling with the different situations.

The day of festivities included: Rock painting, stroller decorating, cornhole, music, and fun for the whole
family! We visited our four neighborhoods: CARE, CONNECT, UNITE, and HONOR! We had the
opportunity to pick up your affinity bracelet in one of those areas to share why you are walking. We were also provided water and bananas for the route leisure 1.5 mile walk around the Towne Centre.

The Chapter raised $2,528 for the National Program of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. We were Ranked
42 out of 171 Chapters. We appreciated all the donations that came in because we know it will be going to an amazing cause.

While at the March of Dimes - March for Babies, we hung close with our fellow county sorority organization: Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc – Rho Eta Zeta Chapter. We thoroughly enjoyed the time together because we both share March of Dimes - March for Babies as National Programs. For the next March of Dimes - March for Babies, we plan to walk together.

Thank you Bro. Stephen Williams, Bro. Trey Gross, Bro. Khalil Johnson, Bro. Jermaine Wilson & Bro. Eddy
Montero for participating in the walk.

Youth Symposium - Womens History Month

3/11/23

Congratulations to our mentees for completing yet another Alpha Academy Mentoring Session. Our March session was a bit different from our other regular sessions and was open to all parents, young men and women, not just AAMP. We held a Youth Symposium in partnership with the Lambda Delta Sigma Chapter of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority Inc. We started our session by celebrating Women's History month, learning the background of the celebration and how it began and our mentees got to hear from a couple of women who have advanced in their industries, talk about Women's History Month and its importance to them. Our Youth Symposium consisted of many fun activities such as learning chess, Barbershop talk for the young men where we have dialogue about real issues/problems/concerns they are dealing with as well as get any questions they may have answered. We also had "Salon Talk - A shop full of sisters" which was the Barbershop talk equivalent for the young ladies. The young ladies also had a "Punch & Paint" workshop where they got to socialize, paint, and have punch and snacks. There were also smaller STEM workshops setup in the gym that the boys and girls could visit at their leisure. We had fun fitness activities and relay activities where the mentees got to pie the mentors in the face. There was a living museum where QR codes were used to make the different exhibits come to life. The AAMP mentees got to continue progress on their pinewood derby cars in preparation for Race Day on May 20th. We even had workshops for the parents that covered various health related topics. We plan to bring the youth symposium back even bigger in 2024!!
