There are two types of clubs under the Service Council umbrella: Service Clubs and Service-Oriented Clubs (SOCs). Service Clubs are fully established clubs that enjoy all of the benefits of being a member of Service Council. Service-Oriented Clubs are clubs that are currently in the process of becoming an official service club. They are founded upon new and interesting ideas, and have a lot of room for potential. Before becoming a service club, each club must be a service-oriented club.
If you are interested in establishing a new service club at SAS, you must follow the procedures outlined by the ESC. Here are the steps:
- Determine the mission, activities, area of service, and approach of service of your club.
- Talk with Ms. Began, Mr. Early, or any member of ESC.
- Find a faculty sponsor.*
- Find 10 peers that would like to become members of your soon to be established club.
- Fill out the SOC application during the application period.**
- After ESC's approval, the club is established as a SOC.
- Begin the process of meaningful service at SAS.
- Document and gather evidence for at least one semester.
- When ready, fill out Service Club application during the application period.
- After approval, club is established as a service club and enjoys all of the privileges of Service Council.
*You will not be able to apply for a SOC or a service club without a sponsor.
**Starting from the 2016-17 school year, the ESC will only accept SOC and service club applications during the application period. The application period will be two weeks long at the beginning of each semester.
