Programming

OUR EDUCATONAL FOCUS IS TO FURTHER DEVELOP REAL, STRONG WOMEN.

The Real. Strong. Women. Experience. is a promise Alpha Chi Omega makes to members to provide an environment where they can become the best versions of themselves through programming such as those offered below!

COLLEGIATE GROWTH TRAINING
This training is a great opportunity for chapter officers to acquire new recruitment strategies and strengthen conversation skills, while learning how to create a values-based recruitment. This training is required for all vice presidents recruitment and vice presidents recruitment information.
 
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESS EDUCATION
On top of helping to support the philanthropic causes of our fellow Panhellenic organizations, Alpha Chi Omega members are dedicated to raising awareness and educating others about domestic violence and sexual assault prevention. Alpha Chi Omega works to educate its own members, giving them tools to build their own healthy relationships, and to raise awareness of domestic violence by educating others on its impact and work being done to end it.
 
GLOBAL SERVICE INITIATIVE
Our Global Service Initiative combines direct service, global immersion, and Alpha Chi Omega principles and values into one unique experience. While traveling with sisters from across the country, participants build, rebuild or remodel areas and structures of need; immerse themselves in local customs and cultures; connect the events to their Alpha Chi Omega experience; and are forever changed by the opportunity.
 
HARM REDUCTION EDUCATION
Our harm reduction approach and philosophy to risk management education helps members move from “you have to follow these rules” to “you can make smarter choices for yourself and your sisters.” Our risk-management and healthy-living programming for chapters helps them with individual and group decision-making and helps increase overall safety in the chapter environment. While alcohol abuse is the most common risk management issue on campuses nationwide, Alpha Chi Omega’s harm reduction approach and philosophy also addresses other risky behaviors such as female bullying, eating disorders, self-respect, hazing and drug abuse

LEADERSHIP ACADEMY
Leadership Academy is Alpha Chi Omega's premiere training for chapter presidents and executive board officers. Held annually in January in Indianapolis, Indiana, the weekend training combines innovative learning sessions with sisterhood to inspire new officers when they return to their chapters. Sessions vary each year but often focus on areas such as action planning, values and ethics, decision-making, conflict management and facilitation skills.
 
MENTAL HEALTH EDUCATION
Mental health is an important topic for our collegiate members, and Alpha Chi Omega recognizes the importance of assisting our members with engaging in this critical topic.

Alpha Chi Omega provides its collegiate members and their parents with information about mental health and wellness through its partnership with The JED Foundation, a leading nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote emotional health among college and university students. The Gatekeeper training through The JED Foundation is tailored to teach collegiate executive board officers how to be gatekeepers, members of the campus community who are in a position to help students who may be struggling with mental health.

In an effort to assist collegiate chapters with honest conversations regarding mental health, Alpha Chi Omega has established a partnership with Ross Szabo, author of Behind Happy Faces, to create a groundbreaking curriculum focused on preparing members and advisors for managing mental health in the collegiate setting. We provide four lessons to peer-facilitate within chapters to help women understand mental health, learn coping skills and develop ways to talk to a sister who may be experiencing a mental health challenge.  
 
MYJOURNEY
As Alpha Chi Omega’s four-year membership program, MyJourney connects our core values of wisdom, devotion and achievement to the life experiences collegiate members face during each academic year of their college career. This program is peer- facilitated; sisters from the chapter facilitate discussions and conversations on everything from negotiation to leadership, philanthropy to relationships, diversity and inclusion and more.

MyJourney also includes “Dedication,” Alpha Chi Omega’s new member education program, which teaches all new members the history, traditions and expectations of Alpha Chi Omega membership. 
 
NATIONAL CONVENTION 
Our biennial conventions are our largest gathering of members and leaders. These events are a fun and exciting way to learn and network with sisters from across the country, as well as gain a newfound appreciation for the unique bonds made possible by Alpha Chi Omega. 
 
PROGRAMS WITH PURPOSE
These programs provide chapters a chance to refresh their activities and presentations while keeping programming consistent with Alpha Chi Omega's learning objectives for personal and chapter growth.
New programming is available each quarter so there's always an opportunity to try something new!

Programs are created in the areas of intellectual development, chapter management, developing relationships, member development, member responsibility, philanthropy and Ritual. Members may log in to review the complete Programs with Purpose directory.

 
ROTATIONAL PROGRAMS
Our four programs are rotated among collegiate chapters each year and include InTune, Alcohol Skills Training Program (ASTP), REPRESENT and Let’s Talk Love. These four distinct rotational programs cover topics such as vulnerability, reducing risk, personal branding, dating violence and more. 
 
WOMEN & WISDOM
Women & Wisdom is an online networking experience designed to connect alumnae and collegians through professional interests and experiences. Alumnae and collegians in their junior or senior year are invited to participate. This interactive experience provides resources and tutorials to help guide mentors and mentees in developing impactful relationships, achieving goals, and gaining new skills and competencies.
