A former emergency medical technician (EMT) with American Medical Response and the Capitol Heights Volunteer Fire Department, Todd Belok serves as a mental health technician at Temple University Hospital’s Episcopal Campus in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Alongside his career in health care, Todd Belok has given back to the community through the Alpha Phi Omega National Service Fraternity.
First envisioned after World War I by Frank Reed Horton, H. Roe Bartle, and Herbert G. Horton at Lafayette College, in Easton, Pennsylvania, Alpha Phi Omega came into existence to promote service across university campuses. Today, the fraternity continues to assist students in connecting with the community and one another through leadership, friendship, and service.
In 2017, Alpha Phi Omega hosted its national volunteer conference in Dallas, Texas. The conference takes place every year, in addition to the fraternity’s regular convention, as a way to promote giving back to local communities.
The fraternity also offers alumni an opportunity to gain further education through its Volunteer University. With eight different tracks, or colleges, the Volunteer University provides volunteer training and support for its members.
