"...Be of Service."
APO Kappa Mu completes over 5000 hours of service each semester. There are many service projects to pick from, and a few of our recurring projects are listed below:
Help sew/put together the Monument Quilt (the art piece that won the Artscape 2016 award for the best piece). This is an art installation that is meant to raise awareness of sexual assault and help victims share their stories.
Squashwise is a tutoring project for KIPP middle and high school students. They come in with work and are allowed to play squash as a reward for completion.
Volunteers/Tutors are not required to play Squash. They are simply asked to help with completion of assignments.
Keswick Musical Entertainment
Volunteers are needed to transport elderly residents. The event lasts for about 2 hours; residents are then transported back to their rooms, if they desire.
Remington Homework Club
RHWC is a tutoring and mentoring project that we do at the Church of the Guardian Angel in Remington. Children range from 1st-8th grade. You will be cooking and serving dinner to both kids and mentors.
Saturdays, 9:30 AM-1 PM
Second Chance is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides people, materials and the environment with a second chance. They deconstruct buildings and homes, salvage usable materials and make those available to the public through our 200,000 square feet of retail space. With the revenue generated, they provide job training and workforce development for those with employment obstacles in the Baltimore region.
A Message from Our Service Chairs
Hello! Our names are Ryan, Katie, and Matt, and we are the Service Vice Presidents for APO this semester! We're excited to help current and future brothers explore their passion for helping the community around us!
Service is one of the three pillars of Alpha Phi Omega, so each brother does at least twenty hours of service every semester. This is just a minimum, and many brothers go above and beyond to put in more hours towards helping the community. With more than 200 members, our fraternity completes more than 5000 hours a semester!
We have a variety volunteer opportunities every single day of the week. Our service projects include tutoring at Bard High School, helping grow vegetables at the Duncan Street Community Garden, serving and cooking food at the Franciscan Center, sewing at Monument Quit, and more! Join us as we try to make a positive impact on the people and the communities that surround us!
