Our Chapter service program provides many opportunities for the development of social awareness, friendships and leadership skills. Participation in our service program helps make Alpha Phi Omega the unique fraternal organization that it is.
The Fraternity has established four categories of service in which Chapters should be involved. These are:
Service to the Campus: Each Chapter should carry out projects that benefit the campus and its students.
Service to Youth and the Community: Chapters should include projects, which benefit the community and its residents. Service to youth- especially the Scouting movements – is a special area of consideration.
Service to the Nation: Each Chapter should develop projects which have an impact beyond the campus and community.
Service to the Members: Service projects that directly benefit the Members of the Chapter should be included. Through leadership workshops, Fraternity conferences, fellowship events and academic support groups, Brothers can challenge and help each other.
Balance is the key to any great Chapter service program.. While service projects can provide both leadership development and fellowship opportunities, the benefits vary with the size and duration of the project.
