APO's mission is to assemble college students in a national service organization in the fellowship of principles of good service practice; to develop leadership, promote friendship and provide service to humanity; and further the freedom that is our national, educational and intellectual heritage.

Alpha Phi Omega has more than 17,000 male and female student members at 366 college campuses nationwide. More than 350,000 members have joined APO since its founding. Alpha Phi Omega is the nation's oldest collegiate service fraternity and the nation's largest collegiate fraternity overall. APO comes with the hope that many of the other service organizations that have left campus will make a comeback.

The members of this organization abide by three cardinal principles: Leadership, Friendship and Service. Look for Alpha Phi Omega to bring new, old and fun service programs based on the local needs of the community. Some of the community service work that APO has participated in has included: the Boys and Girls Club of Redlands, Redlands Family Services, Soles 4 Soles, Operation Christmas Child, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, AIDS Walk Los Angeles, Habitat 4 Humanity, Invisible Children, Big Buddies and the Special Olympics.
