Collegiate Global Service Initiative

Collegiate Global Service Initiative

The Alpha Chi Omega Collegiate Global Service Initiative combines direct service, immersion and Alpha Chi Omega principles and values into one unique experience. 

While traveling with sisters from across the country, participants will build, rebuild or remodel areas and structures of need; experience local customs and cultures; connect the experience to their Alpha Chi Omega experience; and be forever changed by the opportunity.

The collegiate trip will take place May 16-23, 2020 in Jamaica. This experience will include service projects within the Jamaica community. Past projects have included assisting with building an addition to a primary school cafeteria; mixing concrete and laying foundation block for an addition to a local church; painting the inside of an addition to a local school; and laying concrete and painting a netball court for an area primary school.


Participants are responsible for a $750 non-refundable payment to participate in this experience in addition to their travel expenses. The payment can be made in full or $375 by January 31, 2020 and the remaining $375 by March 15, 2020. Additional payment information will be provided to those sisters who are selected to attend.

The application deadline for the 2020 trip has passed.

If you have additional questions, please contact Jen Wallach, associate director of education and leadership initiatives.
