The Kappa League of the Montclair (NJ) Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity is an award-winning leadership development program that provides mentorship to local middle school and high school boys in New Jersey. Each year, our unique program pairs members of our fraternity with local youngsters through an eight month one-on-one mentoring partnership.

Since 2011, the Montclair Nupes have been honored five times as the BEST Kappa League program in the Northeastern Province of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015). Each year, the Montclair Nupes host their annual Frank L. Monroe Scholarship Dance (also known as the “Kappa Gala”)—a fundraiser event that raises tens of thousands of dollars in college tuition assistance local graduating high school seniors.

Many of our Kappa League graduates have gone on to attend some of the nation’s most prestigious colleges and universities; and have become outstanding leaders in their local communities.
