Students For Sustainability has recently put more focus and effort into recruiting new high school and college aged students to be involved in the club and to continue the club’s values and goals. Many of the club’s current members are seniors in high school who will be graduating and heading to college later this year. As exciting as this is for these students, it also means that the group will lose many of its core members and will need new individuals to take on their respective responsibilities.
To combat this issue, SFS has been brainstorming different ways to recruit new members and keep the club active in the coming years. As a group, we have talked about having members serve as SFS representatives at their high schools, where they can meet with classes or clubs to talk about SFS and encourage prospective students to join and become involved with the group. As of right now, these high schools include but are not limited to: Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart, Mercy High School, Westside High School, and Skutt Catholic High School.
In addition to this, SFS members have also discussed hosting a potluck or picnic sort of event, once spring comes around, to meet new members and to come together as a group. SFS has accomplished so much after less than a year of being established, and with more dedicated and involved members, the possibilities are endless.
