Recruiting drive! 5 tips to get started

Elementary school students are enthusiastic and energetic volunteers. They also love to learn and master new skills. Tap their potential in your school and community by asking current K-Kids members to think of ways to recruit new members.

Here is a sample plan consisting of five steps for putting together a recruitment drive:

      1. Discuss. The club officers could lead a discussion on why the club
          needs more members—and how inviting other students to join
          can have a positive impact on them.

      2. Brainstorm. The club can discuss how to motivate other students
          to join. Helpful questions include: What are simple ways that
          we can ask others? Should we hold a special event? Are there
          places such as announcement or bulletin boards where we can
          post an invitation?

      3. Plan. The club should start planning the details of their
          recruitment drive: the responsibilities of each member, the
          timeline and deadlines for the event, talking points regarding
          why students should join, etc.

      4. Execute. Encourage members to show their K-Kids pride as they
          host their recruitment drive. Members should be able to express
          why others should join, how to join and what the club's upcoming
          activities are.

      5. Celebrate. Once the new members are initiated and welcomed,
          celebrate the club’s recruitment efforts with a small party or
          member rewards.
