As an organization comprised of educators at all levels of the academic spectrum from principals, teachers and professors to presidents, vice presidents and deans, BSL Educational Foundation knows firsthand the challenge in educating youth of today, and are poised to reverse the negative trends that have come to represent young men of color nationally.

Through generous donations by members of Beta Sigma Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, State of Connecticut and countless others, scholarship and awards provided to encourage and support young men of color to commit and complete both their high school and college degrees, assisting in removing barriers that may prevent them from discovering the possibilities afforded to college educated men.
