"Another APhiO Service"

Kappa Chapter has been serving Carnegie Mellon and the surrounding community continuously since 1929. Our chapter determines its own service program and each member is encouraged to offer ideas for projects, and help make them happen.

Here's a complete list of our service projects and a link to the Carnegie Mellon Service Calendar.

Our service program is divided into four fields of service, and we try to perform projects in each of the four fields each semester.

Service to the Carnegie Mellon campus

Many of our projects are directed towards campus and are performed on a semesterly or yearly basis. Such projects include a Campus Service Calendar, the C-Book (Campus directory), and Football Concessions.

We also try to help other campus organizations with their charity or service projects throughout the year.

Service to Youth and the Community

Alpha Phi Omega prides itself in its contribution of service to the community. The majority of Kappa's community service projects consist of helping local organizations that need the extra hand. The projects can be anything from fundraisers to walk-a-thons to cooking meals for the homeless.

Kappa also has a strong scouting program where we help local boy scouts and girl scouts through various projects. These include Merit Badge University for the boy scouts and Journey for the girl scouts where we teach between 200 - 300 scouts their required badges. We also help with other smaller events such as Pinewood Derby, camporees, etc. We are hoping to further expand our involvement with scouts through our Venturing Crew.

Service to the Nation
While there aren't many specific projects that we perform in this area, we do try to help with National organizations on a local basis, such as March of Dimes and Habitat for Humanity.

Service to our Fraternity
We provide service to our fraternity through leadership development (both structured and learned), academic support, fraternal support, and alumni relations. This is extended to the national level when we help plan or participate in sectional, regional or national conventions or workshops.
