Below you will find answers to some of the frequently asked questions about our campus club program. If you would like to keep these answers as a handy reference for when you are starting your own club, you can download a printable version here.
First, you will have to find a President and Vice President (and an Advisor if you are in high school). Second, you must submit a club application to be approved. Third, your club must then be verified by your school.
GRC Headquarters is here to help you with every step of the way!
When you start a club you must consider:
Meeting locations are up to each individual club. This can include, but is not limited to, libraries, classrooms, local cafés, community parks, a club member's home, and more. As long as the club meets regularly and submits meeting minutes to GRC Headquarters for each meeting, the clubs are free to meet where they see fitting.
The Club Guide provides club leaders with tips on how to recruit for their chapter. This can include social media posts, making announcements in classrooms before lecture starts, flyering, etc.
GRC Headquarters will gladly assist you with brochures, flyers, and other supplies your club may need during the recruitment phase.
Here are some possible solutions:
The meeting will start with an introduction from the Vice President that includes updates. The Vice President will then proceed through that week’s Prezi.
Weekly updates are meant to be tailored for each club. The slide on the Prezi will remain blank, but club leadership is expected to fill club members in with their weekly updates. In addition, GRC Headquarters meets every Sunday. Updates from Headquarter Meetings will be sent out to the club chapters to include in their weekly meetings as well.
There is no cost to start a GRC club on your campus.
We expect the following from each club:
GRC’s main focus is on mental health awareness and advocacy. We aim to educate about what mental health is, how to help those that are suffering, and what resources are available. We then would like to help students use that knowledge to make change on both the local and national level and spread the word about mitigating the stigma around mental health issues.
