To develop and initiate programs to assist the youth in our society in three principal areas: leadership development, career awareness, and mentoring. With emphasis on self-motivation, discipline, responsibility, common sense, and self-respect. We hope to help young adults, particularly those considered at risk, to develop a positive self-concept, while achieving in academic and job training skills.
The KCDC is the fundraising and philanthropic arm of the Burlington-Camden Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. Serving as the 501(c)3 foundation, the KCDC seeks to strengthen our communities by assisting at-risk youth and disadvantaged families to become positive and contributing members of society thereby enhancing their dignity and quality of life and enabling them to reach their full potential. One primary focus is to fund the mentoring and community service initiatives of the Chapter and KCDC.
These programs are held within the Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Cumberland County areas. It is our determination to do the following:
- Raise and financially account for funds to further mentoring and community service initiatives
- Work with the chapter to develop, promote and accomplish mentoring and community service initiatives
- Raise funds for the acquisition of a property / facility to further Chapter’s and KCDC’s mentoring and community service initiatives
- Financially support community service initiatives that align with the Chapter, KCDC, and Fraternity’s objectives
