The Psi Kappa Kappa Chapter, of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Incorporated, was chartered on Friday, August 19, 2005 at the Redstone Arsenal Officers and Civilian Club. The Chapter was organized for men in the Madison / Redstone Arsenal, AL area. Upon its establishment, the goal of the Chapter was to establish and foster mutual business partnerships with local businesses to provide scholarships to students in the local area. The mission of Psi Kappa Kappa Chapter is to accomplish enrichment programs for the youth and conduct social action activities aimed at uplifting the community. To accomplish this: The Y.O.U.T.H. Friendship Foundation was created and incorporated on August 22, 2005. The charter line (The 8 S.O.T.T) was initiated on November 20, 2011. As the chapter continues to grow each line continues to uphold the proud, rich history and traditions of the Chapter and Fraternity.
One of the first honorable project that the Chapter embraced provided, mentoring, coaching, tutoring and guidance to the Boys and Girls Club of Huntsville, in partnership with the Terry Heights Elementary School. Kids from low income families were introduced to various activities such as Sci-Quest, Space Camp and field trips to attend culturally relevant events. The results of this endeavor yielded long term relationships between several of the Brothers and the young men that they mentored, many of whom have matriculated from post-secondary education and are now making impacts in the Huntsville/Madison community.
The Foundation was formed as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization to fund and develop integrated comprehensive youth enrichment programs, focused on education, character and leadership development ensuring youth in Madison and Limestone counties. To date, over $270,000 in scholarships have been awarded through this foundation to over 120 boys and girls from every ethnic background which has allowed them to attend everything from trade schools to four year universities, some as far away as New Mexico State.
Today, the Chapter is still fully engaged in community uplift in the Madison/Huntsville area and has established partnerships and projects such as mentorship and tutoring with Sonnie Hereford Elementary School.
