Spreading The Word

How are you going to get people involved? Social networking is a great tool to tell people about your meeting or event. You could also post flyers around your school or community, get a message placed on the daily announcements, get listed in a community or school newspaper, send out an email, or use any other resources to let other youth know about the club. Spreading the word allows for other passionate youth to hear about your club and gives them the opportunity to join. Good luck!
