Welcome to the official website for the Theta Eta Lambda Chapter (TEL) of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. our aims are to inform visitors of our vast history, goals, and activities. Founded on December 31st, 1962 and located in Saint Petersburg, Florida. This year we celebrate 54 years of service to the community.


The Theta Eta Lambda Chapter remains committed to National programs and partnerships of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc., including the March of Dimes, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, American Cancer Society's - Relay for Life, "My Brother's Keeper", "Go to High School, Go to College" and "A Voteless People is a Hopeless People". Working with these partners and programs allows TEL to effect social and political change on several different levels.

The fraternity will continue to address the educational needs of our local community through our local program Project Alpha. The significance of this program in the St. Petersburg and surrounding communities are invaluable as it relates to the impact on the lives of our local youth by promoting leadership and service to all mankind. The goal is to optimize, coordinate, train, educate, and provide the necessary leadership, development, and life skill necessary for youth to advance scholastically, socially, and mentally in life and in the broad academic arenas. Please nominate young men in grades 9-12 for the educational programs. We would appreciate the opportunity to provide positive role models and support these young men financially with college scholarship dollars.
