The Alpha Chi Omega Global Service Initiative combines direct service, immersion and Alpha Chi Omega principles and values into one unique experience. There are two distinct opportunities for 2017, one for collegiate members and one for alumnae members.
Alumnae Trip Dates and Project Details
The second alumnae trip will take place in Woodstock, Virginia April 20-23, 2017. This Alpha Chi Omega experience will include two full days of hands on service at a local domestic violence service provider within the Woodstock community. Depending on the service providers needs at the time of the trip, participants may focus on projects such as cleaning, organizing, completing office tasks, or minor construction.
Additionally, participants will spend each evening reflecting on the day having in depth conversations about experiences with Alpha Chi Omega sisters from across the country.
