Alpha Chi Omega Alumnae Making a Difference in New Orleans
Indianapolis – Alpha Chi Omega is expanding its Global Service Initiative in 2015 to include a new service opportunity for alumnae of the organization. On April 16-20, 2015, alumnae members will join together to serve the greatest need of the New Orleans community. While the exact parameters of the project have yet to be assigned, the experience is expected to have significant impact on the community as well as those real, strong women who will roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty to make a difference.
The alumnae opportunity stems from a partnership with the Association of Fraternal Leadership and Values (AFLV) and is the first of its kind for a women’s organization. “Alpha Chi Omega continues to lead the way in educational programming for its members. We’re excited to go on this journey with the organization and look forward to creating an impactful experience for their alumnae members,” said AFLV Assistant Executive Director Ryan O’Rourke.
This extension of Alpha Chi Omega’s Global Service Initiative comes in answer to inquiries and feedback from alumnae who have expressed a desire for such an opportunity. “The Global Service Initiative was developed four years ago for collegians to experience the profound impact an individual can make on others’ lives throughout the world,” stated Amy Colvin Mustafa, Senior Director of Education and Engagement at Alpha Chi Omega’s national headquarters. “Our alumnae have been inspired by these amazing collegians and the daily blogs they post during the trip. They’ve repeatedly asked for a similar alumnae program. And in 2015, we’re excited to deliver two service trips to the membership – one for collegians, and one for alumnae.”
