Reading Yungpost’s Action Toolkit is the first step towards your involvement in our global movement to spread our message around the world.
Being a student, the best way to spread our message on sports for social transformation is establishing a student-led group at school. Your group can host events and activities to raise awareness about the idea of sports for social change and provide fellow students with a way to get involved.
Although every school will vary on how to start a student-led group, it’s important that you ask people on campus for guidance. Contact your school administration, student council, or volunteer groups, to see if they can direct you on the right path. Make sure you fulfill all requirements for starting a club demanded by your school. Often, you will have to fill out a proposal or a mission statement.
Once you have understood how to start a group at your school, and found a faculty member or adviser to guide you through the process, you are ready to BEGIN!

After your first successful meeting, use the next few meetings to establish what the group will do on a regular basis and determine some sort of timeline for events and projects.
With the basics of your group formed, it’s time to publicize your group at school. You want everyone to know what your group is all about, and what it will do in the future to achieve its goal. Use similar tactics explained in the Recruit Students section.
