RECRUITMENT TIPS AND TRICKS:
At the beginning of the year many students are looking for ways to get involved, and you don’t want to miss an opportunity to activate pro-life students! Recruiting is also crucial in finding and developing new leaders. Plus, it’s really fun.
Recruitment Table: Have a table at your school’s club fair, new student orientations, Rush week, Homecoming week and any other school-wide event. You will meet new students and establish your presence on campus. Make sure your table is clean, professional, and inviting. Use color, candy, and fun decorations!

Clipboarding: This is another fun and easy way to find pro-life students at your campus and recruit them to join your group. Don’t know how to clipboard? That’s okay! Watch this short video for great tips: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDrI_AKzFH8
Flyering: Hang flyers all over your campus within the first few weeks of school. Check if you need approval from your school before hanging them. Include contact information for your group as well as information on your first meeting. Flyering can be an incredibly easy first event to get out your message. This is a great way to start your school year with a win.

First Meeting/Social: Hold an intro meeting for everyone in the group to get to know each other. Share your group’s mission and vision. This will help your new members feel included. Set a date and time for following meetings. Make it fun with ice cream or pizza and a fun ice-breaker activity! Be punctual and respectful of the time that students have taken to come to the meeting.
For your first meeting, stick to the basics. Talk about the great plans you have for the upcoming year. Share stories and photos of what your group did last year! For help on how to run a meeting, watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YsmubgSdns
