The Theta Rho Lambda Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) organization established to support young men in the Washington Metropolitan Area in their college endeavors. The foundation is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes.

Through fundraising, merit based scholarships are awarded annually to graduating senior high school students who have demonstrated academic excellence, leadership, and community involvement.

By providing educational based programs and services, the goal is to offer young men in high school and college with information and strategies that facilitates success.

By equipping young men between the ages of 12 – 15 with skills to foster a sense of empowerment and self-esteem, while motivating them to make decisions about their goals and values, and act in ways that support their decisions.
