ALUMNAE Global Service Initiative 2017

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.

Registration Fee

The cost for the alumnae trip for individual participants is $750 plus round-trip transportation to Washington Dulles International Airport. Your investment includes meals, accommodations, travel once on site and participant materials. Participants may want nominal spending money for incidentals while traveling.

Accommodations and Meals

Participants will be staying at the Mable Lee Walton House, a gracious old southern home owned by Sigma Sigma Sigma. The Walton House is a beautiful and clean space, appropriate for the service experience. Rooms will be shared with multiple trip participants.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner will likely be a mix of meals prepared by participants and served family-style; meals catered in; and meals out at a local Woodstock restaurant.
 
All accommodations and most meals are included in registration fees.
