3. Gather Student Support
Support from fellow students or clubs will provide you with a volunteer base and connect you with people who will spread the word about the event. Clubs can also use this as a fundraising opportunity: create and sell Be The Light t-shirts at/leading up to the event.
1. Meet with an Advisor
The first step is crucial to your journey. You need to find a school administrator or staff member to help you navigate the school's policies and guidelines. Our first advisor was the school guidance counselor. This advisor will start off as a spokesperson for you and the project, to inform them of the Be The Light mission and your vision for how it will best fit to your school.
5. Engage Your Community
This is what makes the event so inspiring. Make sure to get in touch with all groups that are participating and get them involved. For example, if your event is at a football game, get the football team, dance team, and band involved.
