Each of our school based chapters meets once a week in our schools, after school or sometimes during the school day. This meeting is the place we come together to build relationships, undergo a process of political education, and learn how to be organizers. At the beginning of each year we recruit new members through classroom presentations that attract students who really want to make a change. Then we will conduct surveys or do listening campaigns to help us understand what the most important problems are for the students at our school. From there we develop an organizing campaign by choosing a problem and turning it into an issue by having a clear idea of what we want, and developing a strategy to build power to make it happen. During our chapter meetings there is a mix of workshops on organizing, leadership development, and political education.
