Serving Others

International Philanthropy

Alpha Omicron Pi was founded on a promise to serve not only one another but the greater community as well. This commitment reflects a philosophy of friendship, concern, and usefulness in the world. The promise to serve can be seen in the relationships between sisters as we work together to help others or contribute to the AOII Foundation to enable scholarships and aid to other sisters. In addition, AOIIs exhibit their commitment to be servant leaders as they participate in a project that raises funds for AOII’s philanthropy, arthritis research and the American Juvenile Arthritis Organization.

AOII's philanthropic mission is to raise money for and spread awareness and understanding of arthritis and its more than 100 related diseases. By holding Strike Out Arthritis! events both at the chapter and international level, we are able to contribute millions of dollars toward education initiatives, assistance for families affected by arthritis, and new research that will hopefully one day find a cure!

As a membership-based organization, AOII relies heavily on volunteer involvement from our alumnae members to function on a local and international level. Regardless of your interest, experience, or location, there are many options as to how you can volunteer your time and talents to Alpha Omicron Pi.

The Human Resources Committee (HRC) is charged with the responsibility of cultivating and recruiting a broad, diversified base of volunteers from the membership of Alpha Omicron Pi. The Committee solicits and accepts applications from potential volunteers and then researches those applications to identify potential candidates for appointive offices. The Committee also identifies volunteers with the special talents or expertise needed to assist the Fraternity with specific projects.

Additionally, the health and vitality of our collegiate chapters depends on the involvement of local volunteers. Alumnae assistance is always welcomed for recruitment activities, involvement with chapter operations and events, and as mentors on the chapter's Alumnae Advisory Committee (AAC).

To get involved with your local collegiate chapter on an AAC, visit our chapter locator. To become an adviser at the local level, you do not need to fill out a volunteer application - contact the Chapter Adviser listed for your chapter of interest to learn about the chapter's AAC or volunteer needs.
