Project Alpha hopes to empower and educate young men in Columbus

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - One local organization is taking the time this weekend to gather together and try to provide support and strong positive influences to young men in Columbus.

On Saturday, the Columbus Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity Inc. held their annual Project Alpha.

The event is a joint venture between the national fraternity and the March Of Dimes. Organizers say the goal of the event is to educate and empower young men in the area.

Designed to provide young men with current and accurate information about teen pregnancy prevention, Project Alpha consists of a series of workshops, informational sessions, and role-playing situations.

Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity brothers lead the event and talked with the teens about things such as teenage pregnancy, abstinence, responsibility, and peer pressure.

The Alphas say they will be conducting sessions like this multiple more times throughout the year.
