Start a Chapter
We've helped students across the nation set up chapters at their schools, and we want to help you, too. Follow our step-by-step guide below to become part of the change.
Step 2: Send NationalAssociationSAGV@gmail.com an email expressing your interest. Include your name, school, and grade level. Wait for us to contact you-- we will respond within 24 hours! Feel free to reach out to our Instagram @NASAGV as well!
Step 3: Review our day-to-day guide below:
Day 1: Envision your chapter. Think about who is best to run it with, what you want to accomplish, and how you want to accomplish it.
Days 2-3: Contact a group (we've found 3-7 people to be ideal) who you want to have help you. Explain what you want to accomplish and get their input. Gauge their interest-- if they are interested, sign them up as a member and work with them to set recruiting goals for the week. At this stage, it is important to contact your school administration if you plan on running this on your campus.
Days 4-7: Assign the top 3-7 people roles. We highly recommend that you involve them in this decision. In this time, you should also recruit as many students as possible and add them to the member database (we suggest organizing this in Google Sheets). The average-sized school can sign up anywhere from 20-100 members within this time period. Set up your social media account, and start advertising your inaugural events.
Week 2: Hold your first meeting (refer to our template on how to conduct your first meeting).
Weeks 3-4: Implement initiatives, continue to schedule meetings, and recruit.
