Sponsor Information

Alpha Phi Omega is a national co-ed service fraternity founded in 1925 on the principles of Scouting. Keeping with our Scouting heritage and spirit of service, the chapter hosts youth achievement days every year. Last year, our chapter served over 700 youth from the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts in two separate events. This year, we hope to continue these traditions. At each of our workshops, scouts may complete as many requirements for their badge of choice as possible during the allotted time, while still giving each requirement the time it deserves.
