First Steps

  • Make a name for the club (this can also be decided when the group is established)
  • Choose when your club will meet
  • Ask people to join your club – it’s a good idea to have an adult in the club so they can be a mentor
  • Have your first meeting and make sure everyone is happy with the meeting time
  • At the first meeting, vote on responsibilities and jobs
  • Captain/President
  • Vice Captain/Deputy
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Task specific leaders e.g. fundraising leader
  • Choose a club logo and motto
  • Decide specific tasks or action that the groups would like to be involved in
  • Work as a team, help each other and make sure everyone is involved
  • Have fun!

Important Things to Remember

  • At each meeting you should have an agenda. This is a list of items that the group is going to discuss. Using an agenda helps the group to stay on task.
  • Organize what you would like your club to be involved in. These could be writing letters to important people, fundraising or protests.
  • Use a calendar to plot important events or when things are due. The secretary can be responsible for this.
  • Social media is great to help you get your message out to the public. Your Cove Club can start a blog!
  • It is important to keep learning – keep reading books and finding out information so you can learn as much as you can and education others.
