DEF will partner with the Kappa Leadership & Development League which is a program designed to aid young men of high school age to grow and develop their leadership talents in every phase of human endeavor. Kappa League provides both challenging and rewarding experiences to enhance their lives. 


The basic objectives of the Kappa Leadership Development League are aligned with DEF’s objectives and are summarized as follows:

  • To help youth, from middle schoolers to those of high school graduating classes, in their selection of courses leading to vocations compatible with their aptitudes and personalities.

  • To inform youth of the values of higher education and to assist in their pursuits.  

  • To assist students, while they are training, to get exposure to occupations and to understand the educational prerequisites of their chosen fields.

  • To assist parents in the handling of their children by providing them the opportunities to talk over their problems with those who know and are successful in their chosen vocations.

  • To afford the less fortunate youths a respite from the drudgery of the streets through sponsored trips to ball games, career fairs, college visits, museums, theater, and other activities.
