INDIANAPOLIS (June 13, 2016) — Staying active with Alpha Kappa Psi as a volunteer provides many opportunities. As a volunteer, one of the easiest and most important tasks is becoming a Certified Fraternity Volunteer (CFV).
A CFV is an Alpha Kappa Psi volunteer that has successfully mastered the topics around good volunteer resource management. In order to be recognized as a CFV, volunteers must first become a Qualified Fraternity Volunteer and pass the certification exam.
But with a full-time job, friends, and other commitments, volunteers may be hesitant to add something else to their plate. However, the CFV program was designed to be effortlessly accomplished and brings benefits that can even help in other areas of life:
Volunteers range in age, years of volunteer experience, positions, and more. To put some numbers in perspective, here are a few statistics of AKPsi volunteers:
