If your school has a club, it is led by a sponsor who is a teacher or another member of the school staff. This sponsor is responsible for reaching out to students at the school who meet the membership criteria at their school. While each club can require additional criteria, our constitution requires all members to be performing at or above grade level. So, if you are eligible, you will receive an invitation to join from your club’s sponsor.
If your school does not have a club, the first step you can take as a student is to find an administrator, counselor, teacher, or school staff member to serve as the club sponsor for your school. Homeschool students can have a parent or guardian serve as a club sponsor.
To help you encourage an adult to serve as your sponsor, share the educators webpage with them so they can learn all about the benefits and responsibilities of starting a club at your school.
