The American Leadership Academy is excited to provide a special program for annual support!
Through our agreement with NEON Donor Management System, you can make a monthly gift to invest in ALA programs, without having to write or mail a check, and with full control over gift management.
The ALA underwrites student participants in the amount of approximately $600 each. That includes six nights shared hotel suite, three full meals a day, ground transportation to and from airport, nightly transportation downtown, and educational materials. With your support, the cost to students is only $170, plus airfare. Compared to other campus leadership programs, our cost to students is outstanding…
It takes only a moment to register with NEON and make your gift. NEON will forward the funds to the ALA and you’ll be able to track your gifts from your online account.
The American Leadership Academy is one of the most unique and inspirational programs for teaching college students how to lead. To be a part of the success, call or E-mail us, or click on the DONATE button.
On behalf of the No Bad Days (NBD) Board, we are excited to announce the second annual opportunity for you to offset your costs for attending the American Leadership Academy (ALA). We understand that rising airfare and uncertain economic conditions has become financially onerous on many of our Brothers, and with your feedback many have taken action and started the NDB Scholarship.
As many of you know, the ALA is held in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, created by entrepreneur Jerry Nelson, to give Phi Kappa Psi undergraduates the option of bettering themselves during their school breaks, while enjoying an amazing destination. During ALA seminars, Phi Psi’s hear from successful and dynamic leaders in business, law, science & technology, public service, sports and education. These are not lecturers; these are men and women who have built successful organizations and teams. They are respected for their knowledge and achievements. Our Brothers not only learn from proven leaders, but get to interact with them, cultivate relationships and gain mentors. I have seen and experienced this personally.
I believe it’s important to understand what this fund means to me, the NBD Board, and what it can mean to YOU. I was fortunate enough to turn my life on the right path due to the responsibilities I was entrusted with as a freshman in college by leading the Phi Kappa Psi chapter at the University of Rhode Island. Working with university and community officials at a young age gave me great confidence, governance and interpersonal skills. It wasn’t until my attendance at the ALA that I learned how much I still had to learn. During my week at the academy, watching so many give so much back to Brothers they never met, made me realize I wanted to be a part of this movement and that I was only starting my education in life, from a boy to a man. I wasn’t shy to ensure I left Cabo with an opportunity of employment for Jerry and Marbella Suites en la Playa. During my tenure in Cabo I learned priceless business skills, made lifelong friends and was able to raise startup capital from my mentors, Jerry Nelson and Scott Noble, to make my own goals a reality.
This year we lost a great asset to the Brotherhood. Brother Jeff Plevan entered Chapter Eternal far too soon in his life at the age of 36. In his name we have created an annual scholarship to be awarded annually to an undergraduate attending the American Leadership Academy who has exemplified the creed of the Brotherhood in his daily life, as Jeff did. The application has a section to apply for an additional $400 in addition to our regular scholarship.
This year we will be giving out 10 scholarship of $600.00. We invite you to fill out the attached application. Please note to be in full compliance with the IRS, recipients will receive their scholarships after attending the ALA and upholding ALA rules and regulations.
Something constantly repeated during the ALA is, “If it is to be, It is up to ME!”, and it is up to you to ensure your hard work as an undergrad is rewarded by applying for The NBD Scholarship.
On Behalf of the NBD Board,
