About AKA

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated began as a vision of nine college students on the campus of Howard University. The sorority has grown into a union of thousands of college-trained women who are bound by a powerful mystique, a real moving factor,in the lives of students in more than four hundred institutions of higher learning. It is one of the most solvent corporations in the world today.

As Alpha Kappa Alpha has grown, it has kept in balance two very important themes: the importance of the individual and strength of an organization of women of courage and ability. As the world became more complex, there was a need for associations which cut across racial, geographical, political, physical and social barriers.

Since its founding over a century ago, Alpha Kappa Alpha’s mission has been to cultivate and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards, to promote unity and friendship among college women, to study and help alleviate problems concerning girls and women in order to improve their social stature, to maintain a progressive interest in college life, and to be of “Service to All Mankind.”

Each year, chapters across the world celebrate the extraordinary vision and purpose of our illustrious Founders. Since 1995, the Metro Atlanta chapters have joined hands to celebrate our legacy of sisterhood and service and honor our Founders at our Metro Atlanta Founders' Day Celebration. The Metro Atlanta Founders' Day Celebration continues to embrace the vision of our Founders ”Service to All Mankind”.

Through the Metro Atlanta Founders' Day Celebration, chapters join together to complete metro-wide community service projects , provide scholarships, and donate thousands of dollars to local and national service organizations. We invite every member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. to join us for this celebration: Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc:, "A Timeless Heirloom of Elegance, Service, and Sisterhood."
