Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. is an international organization and ensures that our reach reflects such. We recognize that the world is truly global and there’s a need to prepare our children for the new opportunities and challenges that globalization presents. Our global impact programs include the following targets:
The demands of a rapidly changing global marketplace require that our students graduate from high school not just with academic competency, but also with 21st-century skills not currently taught in the classroom, such as teamwork, problem solving, and critical thinking within a global scope.
As part of ASCEND, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. has partnered with UNA-USA to implement Model UN Mini-Simulations to educate youth on global affairs.
African has the youngest population in the world, with more than 200 million people between the ages of 15 and 24. Africa’s youth accounts for 45% of the total labor force but more than 75 million are unemployed and many of those who are employed struggle with low wages and job insecurity.
