PROGRAMS Leadership Development Initiatives


aKDPhi established the Leadership Development Initiative (LDI) to provide members with professional growth, leadership development, and networking opportunities. There are three application based programs open to our undergraduate sisters.

Pacesetters Program for Emerging Leaders

The Pacesetter Program for Emerging Leaders was launched in the 2012-2013 academic year, and provides Junior Actives of the sorority an opportunity to learn about their leadership identities through a mini-internship program with National Board. Through attending facilitated workshops and discussion, and working on a national-officers-guided project, Pacesetters will learn more about the sorority they made a lifelong commitment to and learn about opportunities to serve the sorority beyond their chapter.


The SEN10R LEGACΨ program, launched in the 2013-2014 academic year, provides sisters in their final year of college with tools and resources to embrace continued opportunities for personal, academic and career growth. The programs helps our seniors renew their commitment to the sorority as they begin a new chapter. Through professional development tools and a guided experience, graduating sisters will be equipped with tools to learn about and improve their leadership and teamwork styles, apply their skills through a guided practicum, and shape their position within and areas of contributions to the sorority.

Sorority Internship Program

Started in the 2013-2014 academic year, the Sorority Internship Program provides our undergraduate sisters with an unpaid internship experience during the fall and spring terms. It enables undergraduates to gain experience and learn professional skills by building and executing on various internal initiatives. Past interns have contributed to the growth and development of sorority programs that support membership development and chapter operations.
