She's the First Campus Leaders

Start A Chapter

How Do I Start a Campus Chapter?

She’s the First is represented on high school and university campuses all over the country by independent chapters under the direction of trailblazing student leaders. Our campus chapters host fundraisers throughout the year to sponsor girls at She’s the First partner schools, while spreading awareness and creating a dialogue in their residence halls, student center, local community, and of course, on social media.

Where do I begin?

First things first: read through the Campus Chapter Requirements and make sure you’ve got what it takes – we know you do! Next you’ll need to recruit your own Dream Team. Changing the world is no easy task and you can’t do it alone! Find fellow students to compose your executive board, and a faculty advisor to help oversee the administrative details. When your team is in place, you’re ready to submit the application!

What happens next?

New chapter applications are reviewed monthly by our Campus Programs Coordinator. Once your application is approved, you will receive welcome materials and access to our campus-exclusive resources. If you have any questions about the application process, email campus@shesthefirst.org. The spring 2014 application cycle is now closed, but you can get a head start on fall 2014 by filling out the application form.
