Forming or joining a club isn’t as hard as you might think. Some clubs are more community service based and others are just filled with activities and friendly interactions. The following are some great tips on creating clubs and participating in them.  

First, make sure the club is beneficial for all the members within; people join clubs for more activities to put on their resumes or to socialize with others. “Usually people will join for their resume. I would like kids to be more involved,” said A-Ok club sponsor Nancy Schweigert.  

While some don’t have the time for a club because they are working or are too busy caught up in school work, others want even more. “I would prefer to join a club that goes on trips because I would get to do something different,” said junior Brianna Hernandez.

Forming a club involves heavy brainstorming, which means students have to put in the effort as well as having a great idea in order to create a club and to keep it relevant. All it takes is an idea, activity petition, at least ten interested students and approval from the principal. Creator of Film Appreciation Club, senior Nicholas Cuda said, “It’s pretty easy for the most part if you have a good idea, but be prepared for a lot of paperwork depending on the club. Make sure to  complete an activity petition and be prepared because you will be filling a lot out [in order] to do anything in your club.”

In the end, there is a club for everyone, and if there isn’t, start it. Seek out the subjects that interest you by being the first to create them for your school.
