How to start a chapter on your campus

Step 1: Check to see if your college or university has specific guidelines for starting a club or organization. If so, we recommend obtaining and review the guidelines prior to submitting an application to start a chapter.

Step 2: Contact AFA’s young leadership coordinator at 866-232-8484 or to request an application and additional information about the program, including a program handbook, which provides an overview of AFA and the objectives of AFA on Campus.

Step 3: Some schools may also require their own application in order to start a club, as well as a constitution for your new organization. AFA is happy to provide a sample constitution, which includes a description of AFA on Campus’ mission and procedures for chapter meetings.

Step 4: Begin planning volunteer activities in your community and/or fundraising events.
