Alpha Phi Alpha is divided into five regions, and each region hosts a yearly regional convention. The regional conventions are where the brothers vote on and decide which items will be presented before the next biennial General Convention.
The Alpha Phi Alpha College Life to Corporate Life (C2C)® forum is a three-day corporate immersion experience providing opportunities for professional & leadership development and networking with key business leaders supporting the C2C ® program activities. Participants have an opportunity to apply and interview for impactful internships, co-ops, and full-time corporate leadership programs across multiple businesses. At the conclusion of day 3, the class will join the brotherhood at the host convention for additional learning and development. The past five C2C® Leadership forums have been sponsored by General Electric (GE) where participants are assigned corporate mentors to support the college brothers’ development. To date, GE has over 100 Alpha Phi Alpha members within the company.
The purpose of the Alpha Leadership Academy is to provide a thorough, intense experience for young men who have been elected to some leadership role at the various levels of the fraternity. What makes this program unique is the student development foundation on which it is based. Several student development theories are used as the theoretical framework within which this academy operates. Such theories include the Student Wellness Model for holistic development, involvement theory, moral development, service learning, among many others. The Wellness Model will be of particular importance because it allows facilitators to tap the cognitive, social, spiritual, physical, and cultural dimensions of Alpha's college brothers’ development.
