The nationally recognized Beautillion (pronounced bō-til’yen) Militaire was developed as a local response to Guide Right, a national service directive of Kappa Alpha Psi. Since its inception in 1976, this program has become a landmark experience for those who have participated and has since been adopted by a multitude of other Kappa alumni chapters across the country.
The “crown jewel” of the Kappa Charitable Trust Fund, Incorporated, the Beautillion Militaire Leadership, Training and Scholarship Program was established in 1985 by William A. Rainbow and Samuel Greene — members of the Raleigh Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity. Inc. The Purpose of this program is to expose young men in the Greater Raleigh area to leadership training through concentrated and systematic efforts. Made up of high school juniors and seniors, the program provides an opportunity to present their skills and achievements to the community, as well as give each participant the chance to earn scholarship awards to assist them with their secondary education.
The Beautillion Program aims to provide a structured environment for high school students where their lives are enriched through professionally supervised educational research, seminars, workshops and social activities.
Specifically, the program provides participants with exposure in the following areas:
- Seminars and workshops
- Understanding of personal potential
- Fellowship with other aspiring high achievers
- Professional mentoring
- Teamwork and leadership skills
- Social and interpersonal skills
- College selection and career path guidance
