Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity provides a foundation of leadership skills to its members that is developed through service to others. As the largest Greek-letter organization as well as the largest collegiate service organization, the work of its chapters since 1925 has had significant impacts on individuals, campuses and communities for decades. Each year, APO members record more than 1 million hours of service, and this number continues to grow because of APO’s devoted membership.


Although chapters organize their own campus and community events throughout the year, the Fraternity sponsors two annual service events in which chapters nationwide participate in, National Service Week and Spring Youth Service Day.

We create inclusive communities for a more peaceful world in which to make a life, by developing leaders, uniting members through friendship and rendering service to all.

National Service Week

National Service week takes place the first week of November each year. A theme is decided for NSW at each biennial National Convention, and each chapter is given the task to create a service project that corresponds with the given theme.

Spring Youth Service Day

Spring Youth Service Day is a weekend-long service event focused on service for and with the young of the world. This event corresponds with Youth Service America's Global Youth Service Day, the largest service event in the world.
