ABOUT ALPHA PHI OMEGA

Alpha Phi Omega is a coeducational national service organization that provides it members the chance to develop leadership skills through service projects on their campus, in their community and across the nation.

Membership shall be conferred upon enrolled students of an institution of higher education at which a chapter of Alpha Phi Omega is located who are selected by that chapter to participate.

PURPOSE

The purpose of Alpha Phi Omega shall be to assemble
college students in a national service fraternity in the
fellowship of principles derived from the Scout Oath
and Law of the Boy Scouts of America; to develop
leadership, to promote friendship and to provide service
to humanity; and to further the freedom that is our
national, educational and intellectual heritage.
