Make certain that you have gone to the school board website or filled out the proper paperwork with your respective county school board and registered as a volunteer
Make sure that you have attended a Campus Coach Training session and have filled out a coach commitment and a background check form before going on campus.
Do not circumvent the sign-in process. Sign in at the front office every time you visit the club. Wear your First Priority ID card on a lanyard and attach the school issued “Volunteer” badge to the back so that it can be scanned.
Make sure that a faculty sponsor is present for every meeting…both for planning sessions and club meetings. Do not hold a club meeting without a representative from the school being present. Ask the sponsor to give you a list of “alternates” and arrange for one should he/she be unavailable.
Participate monthly in a TEAM Cycle planning session with student leaders, using the four-week planner.
Stick to the First Priority plan…this establishes confidence that our clubs are strategically synchronized and will help keep your club from taking a non-legal path.
Do not engage the group in controversial issues or get involved in denominational differences. If we stress our similarities and show love we will have followed the Biblical model.
Encourage the faculty sponsor to file an activity form with the administrator, along with a copy of the club Constitution/By-Laws (signed by several students).
Try to meet the principal and express appreciation for allowing the First Priority Club the status it’s due because of Equal Access.
Remember to say “thank you for inviting me to your club” whenever you attend a meeting. And if you’re scheduled to speak, be sure to acknowledge the invitation.
Do not participate in a mass distribution of fliers or any other printed material without the approval of the school administration.
When going to a new or unfamiliar school, be careful how you dress. Collared shirt, long pants and closed toe shoes will create a more professional appearance. Remember that ministry starts not when we walk into the room but when we walk onto the campus.
