In many ways, the Beautillion program is a rite of passage; bringing additional importance to the participant’s transition from high school to higher education. The Beautillion Program provides the participating young men with exceptional value-added opportunities through rite of passage activities, cultural awareness, leadership development and community service learning.
This Gala is the culminating event that highlights the participating young men’s academic, social and scholarship achievements.
Please join the Nu Mu Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated and the Charles H. Wesley Education Foundation Board for this auspicious occasion.

This event kicks off the 2015-2016 school year as the DeKalb Alphas embark on 9 months of mentoring, community service, and seminars for the young men in our program that represent student in every grade from 4th graders to High School Seniors.

August 28th though 30th will mark the dates of the 2015 Retreat of the DeKalb Alphas. The weekend will feature a social event on Friday, a business session on Saturday, and a church service on Sunday. The Brothers are clearly excited about the Retreat and what’s going on in the chapter as it appears that there will be nearly 75 Brothers in attendance! 75 Brothers gathered to fellowship, strategize, and count our blessings. By all accounts, this level of attendance will be the largest retreat gathering in the chapter’s 35 year history. Big things are happening in the Nu Mu Lambda Chapter and even greater things rest on the horizon!
In early August, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. held it’s 93rd General Convention in the Queen City of Charlotte, NC, and the Brothers of Nu Mu Lambda were there in full force. There were 40 Brothers from the chapter registered at the convention and our presence was felt in every business session and event at the gathering. The chapter even hosted private forums with a number of the candidates for 35th General President of the Fraternity. As always, Nu Mu Lambda once again demonstrated that while we are a local chapter, we are present and active beyond the boundaries of our particular geographic community.
