The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) addresses opportunities for greater minority youth involvement in national service and is intended to create opportunities to better prepare and equip minority youth and young adults to become role models, tutors, and mentors to students attending some of the lowest-performing schools in the U.S., by encouraging them to apply to give a year of service through City Year, participate in City Year-led leadership development workshops for collegiate chapter members of Omega Delta Phi and collaborating with City Year staff and corps members across the network to create leadership opportunities for diverse local high school students.
At City Year’s 25 locations across the country, City Year corps members ages 17 to 24, supported by AmeriCorps, serve in high-poverty schools throughout the entire schoolyear, applying the power of national service to help increase student success and close the education achievement gap. Corps members work directly with at-risk children to improve student attendance, behavior, and course performance in English and math which research confirms is a way to significantly increase the urban high school graduation pipeline in America. As near peers working in schools from before the first bell rings and until the last child leaves the after school program, corps members are uniquely able to help students and schools succeed.
About Omega Delta Phi: Omega Delta Phi is a multicultural service/social fraternity committed to graduating its members and serving the community. The Fraternity has established itself on over 60 college campuses, and is predominantly centered in Texas and the Southwest. Since founding in 1987, Omega Delta Phi has been an organization perpetually dedicated to the idea of constant growth and improvement. We must work to form an organization which not only challenges the traditional perception of fraternities, but also deals with the issues of culture and race in a completely new perspective. Thinking out of the box is no longer an acceptable plateau; the box must now be removed completely.

Good Afternoon Brothers,
We just want to thank all the brothers who attended National Conference in Milwaukee. We also want to thank the planning committee, the Wisconsin Alumni Association, and the AZ Chapter for their hardwork, dedication, and execution of this past weekend.
For those who didn't attend, this year's conference had a new, vibrant, and detailed look. Events such as the Omega Ceremony received its proper impact with brothers giving emotional testimonies on behalf of our fallen brothers. In addition, our partners such as City Year, Teach For America, and Geico all made their presence known at #ODPhi2013. Unconventional to previous conferences, the undergraduates got some exercise with the "Art of Stepping" workshop led by Jessica Remo.Read more
