2021 MLK Youth Program & Gordon College Fair

to be ZOOMED on Feb 6th

Greenville, South Carolina - Alpha Phi Alpha Greenville Foundation along with Gamma Gamma Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha will sponsor its 42nd Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Youth and Dr. Rudolph G. Gordon on Saturday, February 6, 2021, on a Zoom Online Conference Session. Any students, parents, brothers, or volunteers can participate in the program by registering at http://mlkyp2021.eventbrite.com

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this event will be held virtually via a Zoom meeting. Registrants will receive a link to the meeting in the registration confirmation email and in a reminder email the day before the event.

This event seeks to recognize and encourage Greenville high school students to remain in school and pursue college. Greenville School District is a long-time partner with the program that has been conducted since 1977. High schools guidance offices nominate students who excel in one of the five following categories:

  • Academics

  • Art

  • Athletics

  • Leadership

  • STEM

  • Music

Each high school has its own selection method process but we encourage them to select students who talented in those above areas but may need encouragement to pursue college. Normally held on the first Saturday in February, we award Youth Awards certificates to all nominated winners a program starting at 12:30 PM. We also hold a College Fair (10 AM to 12:30 PM) were invite colleges to send representation to the event and we hold two seminars on "Getting the most out Financial Aid" and "Experiences from their first year in College" with current and former students from Furman, USC-Upstate and Clemson University.
