Kappa Upsilon Lambda Chapter, the 542th Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Incorporated, was founded in the Fall of 1974 by fourteen men in the Mid-Hudson Valley area of New York in order to continue their commitment to the Fraternity and it’s motto. Our mission is to help young black males graduate high school and inspire them to become productive citizens through a college education. Our services also include educating our communities on the importance of voting and practicing abstinence.
