Even though you may not be on campus this summer, active brothers and alumni volunteers (especially the class of 2017) can participate in great programs this summer to keep Alpha Phi Omega spirits high and skills sharp! If you have questions about either program, or are interested in scholarship opportunities, contact Aaron Knight, Region Chair.


This weekend-long training session is designed to allow students to learn and practically apply project and meeting management and delegation in a group setting. You must have completed LAUNCH prior to attending SERVE.  LAUNCH is available year-round. The course starts promptly at 7 pm on Friday and concludes by noon on Sunday.

The cost to attend SERVE is $60 for students and $80 for alumni members, with a $5 discount for Society of Life Members. This cost covers food, supplies, and lodging for the weekend. Alumni volunteers are also welcome to attend SERVE in order to complete Presenter Content Training.
