There are also 250 chapters in the Philippines, one in Australia and one in Canada. Alpha Phi Omega is a national co-ed service fraternity organized to provide community service, leadership development, and social opportunities for college students.

Unlike many other fraternities, APO's primary focus is to provide volunteer service within four areas: service to the community, service to the campus, service to the fraternity, and service to the nation. Being primarily a service organization, the fraternity restricts its chapters from maintaining fraternity houses to serve as residences for their members. This also encourages members of social fraternities and sororities that have houses to join APO as well.
