The Galveston Alumni Chapter created the ICARE Foundation in November of 2008. The Foundation advances this mission primarily through its work in middle and high schools in Galveston County, Texas and two age appropriate programs.
The ICARE Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non profit organization.
The purpose of the ICARE Foundation is to partner with parents and educators in building young leaders of tomorrow around the pillars of Integrity, Compassion, Achievement, Respect and Excellence.
The Foundation advances this mission primarily through its work in middle and high schools in Galveston County, Texas and two age appropriate programs
In Middle Schools the Foundation is committed to:
* Involving students age 9 to 13 in a series of classroom sessions, projects, activities and community service work designed to prepare them for achievement in every field of endeavor.
* The ICARE ~ Partners in Education Program. A program designed to partner with parents and school administrators in developing young minds around the 5 pillars of ICARE.
In High Schools the Foundation is committed to:
* Involving students age 14 to 18 in a series of classroom sessions, projects, activities, community service work, life skills and mentoring.
The Kappa Kamp summer program is available for eligible students who have additional opportunities to build their skills through intensive workshops. At the Kamp, students may choose from a number of enrichment classes, as well as attend a variety of cultural and recreational activities, field trips, and educational lectures.
The ICARE Foundation is directly linked to the Galveston Alumni Chapter's Guide Right initiatives.
Guide Right is a program for the educational and occupational guidance of youth, primarily inspirational and informational in character. Its reach extends to high schools and colleges alike.
In the latter, giving due attention to the needs of undergraduate Brothers. Conceived in 1922 by Leon W. Stewart, and suggested at the twelfth Grand Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi, Guide Right became the Fraternity's National Service Program. Jesse Jerome Peters, later to become the eighth Grand Polemarch, was chairman of the committee, during the administration of W. Ellis Stewart as Grand Polemarch.
Guide Right is administrated by a National Director and a Guide Right Commission. The Guide Right Commission consists of the Director and twelve Province Guide Right Coordinators, one from each Province, appointed by their respective Province Polemarchs. The Director is uniquely qualified to perform the duties of this office and is appointed by the Grand Polemarch. He prepares such directives as are necessary for the successful and efficient observance of this National movement. He also edits and prepares the Manual for the universal use of Undergraduate and Alumni.
The Galveston Alumni Chapter has adopted the Wright-Cuney Center in Galveston, Texas as its main Guide Right focus area. Upcoming events in efforts to enhance the center include but not limited to:
- Book Drives
- Improvements to the technology of the Computer Lab
- Continued mentoring to the center's youth
