AWJA was created by Alpha Boys' School, a non profit vocational school for at risk boys in Kingston, Jamaica, to support the school’s vocational and educational programming. The Alpha Boys School music program has launched the careers of many of Jamaica’s music pioneers, from jazz men Joe Harriott and Dizzy Reece to the original King of the dancehall, 1997 Gramy nominee, Winston ‘Yellowman’ Foster. 100% of the proceeds of Alpha Wear JA support the personal, Foste educational and vocational development of Jamaica’s next generation of success stories. AWJA designs were created by Jamaican graphic designer Michael Thompson, aka Freestylee: Artist Without Borders. Taken from a special poster Thompson contributed to the First International Reggae Contest (2012) which Thompson co-founded with partner Maria Papaefstathiou, the AWJA design pays tribute to the school’s musical legacy and the social mission of Alpha Boys School today.
