The American ClubSponsored by: The Institute on the Constitution. Steps to Starting an Campus Club on your High School or College
You need members… • Gather a group of students with a vested interest in the foundation of American law and government, current events, and politics. • 2 students is all that is required and this is a great start. Small numbers can do great things! • Try to be diverse: age, gender, race, political views, religion, etc.
Teacher Sponsor • Find a teacher/advisor to sponsor the club by allowing you to use his/her room for meetings. Any classroom with work, just a few things to consider: • Consider internet connection • Consider some discussion may include Skypeing guest speakers in.
Meeting Format • Determine how often the meetings will be held (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly) • Choose best days and frequency so as not to alienate students involved in other activities. • Determine the length of your meetings (30 minutes, 1 hr, etc. - generally 1 hour is required for the curriculum). • Make this decision together as a group so everyone’s perspective is heard.
Register with the School • Submit the idea for the club to either the school principal or a designated assistant principal. • Include the purpose of the club and proposed meeting dates.
