What is a Chapter?

Chapters are local branches of Scholars for Society that engage directly in their local communities, foster growth and collaboration between students through volunteer opportunities, and provide informative lessons about our topics.

Why Start A Chapter?

The streamlined process and support provided by SFS ensure that you won’t be starting from scratch – prewritten materials and established procedures are at your disposal, allowing you to spend your time driving impact in your community.

Most importantly, you can address the unique needs of your community as you see fit. We understand that you may have certain interests and areas you’d like to pursue, so we’re always flexible with your goals. By starting a chapter, you’re not just joining an organization; you’re leading a movement that empowers you to make a tangible difference where it matters most.
