Through the efforts of the Foundation and the help of charitable contributors, observable differences in communities have been made. Our efforts to date have helped many children, but the needs of our children remain immense. We must continue with unfaltering determination and dedication.

Our cornerstone program is the A.L.P.H.A (Alpha Leadership Program for Higher Achievement) Program; an 11-week program with a longstanding history of student success. The program is designed to target middle and high school students (grades 6 through 12) to address specific needs and preparatory skills required for professional, leadership and social development, academic excellence and higher personal achievement. Workshops and modules focus on, but are not limited to, the following critical areas: College Preparation, Career Planning, Interviewing Skills, Resume Writing, Professional Etiquette and Attire, Fiscal Responsibility, Health Management, Leadership Training and Development, Technology Awareness, Critical Thinking and Analysis, and Public Speaking/Oratorical Skills. The program finishes with a week-long college tour during Gwinnett County’s spring break.
Save Morris Brown Fundraiser:
Morris Brown College
Morris Brown College has faced and endured difficult circumstances since the turn of the 21st century. Numerous financial and reputational issues – even the loss of accreditation – have added to the constant speculation about the school’s viability and ultimate demise. These challenges have been documented in numerous stories in the media and popular press. Yet, despite varied impressions about their struggles, Morris Brown College continues to weather these hard times and survive. Throughout this survival process, they have never wavered from our 1881 charter as an institution of higher learning, believing in the promise of our students and providing them a quality education. The “new” Morris Brown College will be armored to quickly and easily respond to and take advantage of economic cycles, demographic projections, job trends, and labor market shifts as we impact the future of higher education.
The Atlanta Greek picnic weekend has taken great pride in donating a portion of our proceeds back to Morris brown college after every year’s event.
