leadership is a matter of development. Alpha Phi Omega develops
leaders, and we are very proud of that. As we grow, we seek qualities
of leadership, and throughout our lives, we pursue the development of
those qualities and the development of other 'well-rounding' qualities.
Through our leadership development program in Alpha Phi Omega, we are
able to develop ourselves. And, as we aspire to greater things in life,
we become aware of limiting factors - which we can't control, the
external forces that shape our destiny until we control and develop
what we have inside of us. We discover our own talents and strive to
better our skills. We study, we learn, we practice.
is the spirit of friendship. It implies respect, honesty and
dependability. It means that we overlook differences and emphasize
similarities as we join together in unselfish service. It means
listening to Brothers whose views on issues might differ from our own.
It means working closely with people whom under other circumstances we
might not choose as our friends.
Chapter service program provides many opportunities for the development
of social awareness, friendships and leadership skills. Participation
in our service program helps make Alpha Phi Omega the unique fraternal
organization that it is.
