The ONE Campus Challenge is a college competition designed to mobilize students, faculty and alumni in the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease.
How To: Organize Your Chapter
The first step to organizing a ONE Chapter at your school is to recruit like-minded students to help lead the chapter. Identify a few students who are willing to take on leadership roles within the team, so that you’re not doing the bulk of the work by yourself.
BEST PRACTICES TO CONSIDER:
WHO LEADS A ONE CAMPUS CHAPTER?
How you decide to structure your Executive Board will depend on your group’s need, strengths, and your campus. Work with your team to decide on the best leadership model for your chapter. Keep in mind any specific requirements your school may have regarding Executive Board positions. Here’s an example of positions that have worked well for many schools. Job descriptions for the positions below can be found on the ONE Campus website.

WHAT MAKES UP A ONE CAMPUS CHAPTER?
Every campaign, tabling opportunity, and event is a chance to recruit new active members that make up your ONE Campus Chapter. Catalytic Action Takers (aka your reliable, active general members) can be counted to take catalytic advocacy actions (i.e. personalized communication with deleted leaders such as letters and calls), attend and staff events, help you table on campus and regularly attend meetings. You should always be looking for ways to delegate tasks to your active members and move them into leadership opportunities. Your E-Board should also assist in managing and delegating tasks to your active members.
