In 1922, during the Twelfth Grand Chapter, Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. adopted Guide Right as its national service program. The idea behind the program was to assist high school seniors in selecting a meaningful career. In addition to guidance, the fraternity also provided college scholarships to those in need. Initially, the program focused on providing counseling during a seven day period, which was also known as "Concentration Week." By 1923, Guide Right had become a year round effort.
At the Fifteenth Grand Chapter, hosted on the campus of Columbia University during December 26-30, 1925, Kappa Alpha Psi reported continued growth in its membership and local chapters. By 1925, there were twenty-three undergraduate chapters and sixteen alumni chapters. It was also during this meeting that the designation of "Regional Director" became "Province Polemarch."
