During the Leadership Development Institute, Alpha Ambassadors serve as representatives of their
schools, communities, and homes.  These young men are selected and sponsored by an array of civic
organizations, mentor programs, and school districts.  During and prior to the LDI these young envoys
demonstrate maturity, character, scholarship and service; all of the fundamental qualities required for
leadership.  At LDI, members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraterntiy, Inc., workshop facilitators, and chaperons
nurture the leadership and personal growth potential of each ambassador.  Ambassadors are
provided leadership opportunities beyond LDI and become messengers of hope and pride who are
able to make a difference in their home school and communities.
