Prospective Members

Alpha Phi Omega use the concepts of fraternalism as a means of providing assistance to others while developing close bonds of friendship among its members.


APO is 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. The benefits of being a member include – but are not limited – gaining leadership skills, building your resume, networking with members across the world, meeting lifelong friends, and of course, finding your passion for service.


Membership in APO looks different at each university. Members are encouraged to create their own experiences through APO by taking leadership positions, attending brotherhood events and finding meaningful service projects. Time commitment varies each semester, however you can plan on being able to find what works for you.


Alpha Phi Omega exemplifies volunteerism like no other student organization. This is why more than 470,000 students have chosen Alpha Phi Omega since the Fraternity’s founding in 1925.


If any of this sounds like something you’d be interested in, APO is the place for you.


The information below will help you find a chapter on your campus and connect with their officer, or get information about how you can bring APO a campus near you!
