The Alpha Phi Alpha Foundation of Manasota, Inc. was formed by members of Xi Psi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, to address the needs of disadvantaged minority youth in Sarasota and Manatee Counties in the state of Florida.

Members of Xi Psi Lambda Chapter have long recognized the need to address the special educational and social needs of disadvantaged minority youth in this area. They have addressed the issues of low grade point averages, poor performance on standardized tests, higher than normal dropout rates, and the failure of most minority students to graduate from high school with a diploma through a highly successful mentoring program initiative. The Foundation in partnership with the Sarasota County Schools offers a mentoring leadership initiative for Culturally Diverse Male Students. The Foundation functions throughout the year for the purposes of program development, fundraising, and evaluation. Direct services are provided during the months of September through May.
