Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated, since its inception, has stood at the forefront of reducing the disparities between social classes within our communities.  The Alpha Pi Lambda Chapter continues to uplift its community by actively and passionately implementing National and Chapter specific programs that carry that tradition - true Servants of All.

The Youth Life Skills Institute was founded as a result of a youth initiative of the Alpha Phi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity. The organization is a 501(c)3 nonprofit entity dedicated to helping Youth. Our mission is to implement efficient and effective programs that enrich, empower, and enlighten Youth with life skills to help them be successful in their life pursuits and to be better citizens and responsible adults in the communities in which they live.

YLSI is based on the concept of creating partnerships and collaborations with existing organizations of similar mission. There is no need to reinvent the wheel. There are many excellent organizations that already have good programs in-place. Such programs can be properly integrated within the context of the YLSI curriculum.

The Ronald McDonald House of Winston-Salem was founded a by a group of parents whose children were being treated for cancer at Brenner Children’s Hospital. The effort was led by Dick and Penny Latham. The Lathams lost their son in 1980 at the age of three. The House was born out of a desire for the Lathams to honor their son and help the families of sick children being treated in Winston-Salem. The Alpha Pi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has been a proud partner with the Ronald McDonald House of Winston-Salem since 2013. While volunteering at the RMH we fold linens, make deliveries within the house, organize donations, clean, and do whatever needs doing.

The Adopt-A-Highway Program was established in 1988 by the North Carolina Department of Transportation in response to growing public concern regarding litter along the state's highways. Its purpose is to decrease the amount of litter on North Carolina's roadsides and improve the beauty and quality of the environment. The Alpha Pi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. has partnered with the North Carolina Department of Transportation since 1990 and currently cleans a two mile stretch of Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard once per quarter.
