Alpha Phi Omega (USA)

Alpha Phi Omega is a National Service Fraternity whose cardinal
principles are Leadership, Friendship and Service. Out program of service
is directed to four areas: Campus, Community, Nation, and Fraternity.
We were founded by former Boy Scouts who wanted to continue Scouting ideals
in the college setting.

We have about 350 active chapters in the United States and more than 225,000
students have chosen Alpha Phi Omega. There are about 150 chapters of Alpha
Phi Omega, Philippines and we are interested in extending to other countries.

We were founded in 1929, until 1967 membership was only former Boy Scouts,
however today membership is now open to any college student, male or female.
We are not a social fraternity. We have no selective or exclusive membership
requirements and there is absolutely no hazing.

We maintain strong ties to its Scouting roots.  HOWEVER, the BSA does not
finance or govern the fraternity in any way. Examples of Service to Scouting
include sponsoring Scout troops, staffing Camporees and other functions,
cleaning up Scout camps and assisting in fundraising.
