Background Statement Frank Reed Horton founded APO in 1925 at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania. A few years later, H. Roe Bartle became National President until 1946. Since then, nearly 500,000 members have joined Alpha Phi Omega. Today there are active chapters on over 350 campuses across the country. In the last 20 years membership growth has more than doubled, meaning more people leading and serving on their campus or in their community.

Short-Term Success Participants understanding of leadership, evaluation and implementation of skills learned, and the number of hours volunteered to help organizations are all ways we measure shorter-term success.
Long-Term Success
We measure the success of our programs through the number of campus and community leaders who are members of Alpha Phi Omega. We do not care if they are leading in their place of worship, their school, a non-profit, or as an elected leader. Any leadership that can improve their community and in turn improves the world is fulfilling our mission.
Program Success Monitored By Post program evaluation and member engagement.
Examples of Program Success In the last ten years we have served more than 20,000 college aged members in our leadership program. These members have gone on to be executives and senior managers at non-profits big and small, joined Teach for America, Peace Corp., Girl Scout and Boy Scouts professional staffs just to name a few. Alumni repeatedly tell us they gained their passion for volunteering through Alpha Phi Omega.
Description The first week of every November is Alpha Phi Omega’s National Service Week. Our 400 chapters use this week of volunteering to support programs around a general area of need. The students who attend our National Convention select this area of need. These themes have ranged from helping those with disabilities to getting out the vote and everything in-between. The current year’s area of emphasis for this week of service is respect for others. Some programs that support this theme are based on anti-bullying, diversity, inclusiveness programs, for their communities.

Short-Term Success The short-term goals are area of emphasis specific and similar to the long-term goals. How many chapters used the area of emphasis, how many hours were dedicated to the area of emphasis and how many people in the community benefited from the emphasis area.
Long-Term Success
The National Service Week long-term success is based on how many chapters participate in the program, how many volunteer hours are dedicated to the area of emphasis, and number of people in our communities that benefit form the program.
Program Success Monitored By Survey results, chapter reporting, and media mentions.
Examples of Program Success Last year with our emphasis on helping those with disabilities we were able to assist more than 20,000 people with disabilities through a variety of agencies and programs. Our members committed more than 100,000 hours of service to helping those with disabilities in this one week.
