Psi Lambda Lambda Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.was chartered January 20, 2005 in New York City. The Chartering Ceremony was held on March 19, 2005 at the historic St. James Presbyterian Church in Harlem, NY. Psi Lambda Lambda was chartered by thirty-seven Omega Men, of which nineteen have life membership. Psi Lambda Lambda Chapter is apart of the Mighty Second District of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
As its inaugural venture, the Chapter sponsored a theater party. We participated in the Mentoring Program of the Eagle Academy. We also served as volunteers at the Supplementary Education Expo. The Chapter sponsored fundraisers that support our Scholarship Fund. We conducted a shoe drive for the Etu Evans Solesville Foundation, Inc. to benefit survivors of Katrina – a monetary donation was given to assist in the transportation of items collected. Since then, our Chapter established the Purple Book Gold Book Project to create functional bookshelf space in New York hospitals for children patients, and their families with educational and fun reading materials.
In 2008, the Purple and Gold Leadership Academy for Young Men was founded to provide an educational, mentoring and supportive atmosphere for young men between the ages of 14-18 years old. During the same year, we established a nonprofit 501c (3) corporation, Project Outreach: Uplifting and Reigniting Scholarship – Psi Lambda Lambda Foundation (POURS – PLL). Its purpose is to reestablish education as the first choice to elevating oneself both socially and economically.
The Chapter is committed to the four Cardinal Principles of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.: MANHOOD, SCHOLARSHIP, PERSEVERANCE, and UPLIFT.
