Who, Why & How

Courtesy of Alpha Gamma Chapter at Purdue University 

Be a leader. Be a friend. Be of service. 

These are the building blocks of Alpha Phi Omega and the Cardinal Principles that guide our members in college and in life. 
Alpha Phi Omega is a coeducational, national service organization that provides its members the chance to develop leadership skills through service projects on their campus, in their community and across the nation. While other groups volunteer, making the world a better place is not their primary focus. This is why more than 400,000 students have chosen APO since our founding in 1925.
We are an inclusive group, open to all nationalities, backgrounds and genders, and we welcome you to become part of our amazing organization so that together, we can pursue a common goal - leading through service to others. 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.

To determine if a chapter is on your campus, use the chapter locator.

If one doesn't exist, please let us know you are interested by completing our Start A Chapter Inquiry form.
