Welcome to the home of the Beta Nu Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated. We are charged to be leaders in our community and actively engage the citizens of Charlotte, NC. We accomplish this through a number of our signature programs. Alpha Academy targets 6th-11th graders, it seeks to provide educational opportunities, self-improvement, and the essentials of being a gentleman. Our Beautillion program continues on the Alpha Academy programming but is targeted towards high school seniors. Our students go through a number of sessions geared to prepare them for college life. The culmination of the program is a Rites of Passage and formal production presenting them to the community. The participants raise money through our Foundation which returns 80% of funds raised to the winner. We take pride that we return the highest percentage payout of any Historically Black Greek Letter Organization in the city. We are active politically through our “A Voteless People Is a Hopeless People” program working hard to ensure we register voters and by providing access to candidates via political forums. Annually we sponsor a candidate’s forum which usually consist of approximately 100 candidates (local, state and national). The chapter also presents Project Alpha annually, a partnership with the March of Dimes. Project Alpha is designed to provide education, motivation and skill-building on issues of responsibility, relationships, teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. The chapter was recognized by the Mayor’s office as mentors of the year. We also financially support the March for Babies Walk, The Freedom Schools in Charlotte, NC, and various other community initiatives.
While the brothers of Beta Nu Lambda work hard, we also know how to have a good time. The Alpha Luau remains our marquee event each summer bringing the area’s best DJ’s and one of the best parties Charlotte has to offer with over 600 in attendance. The brothers also celebrate the CIAA and enjoy our fraternity house with other area Greeks for Frat House Fridays. Beta Nu Lambda works daily to accomplish the tenets that make Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. the premier fraternal organization. It is our responsibility to create change for our community and we pride ourselves on being the Guardians of the Queen City-Charlotte, NC.
