Start a Chapter
What is a chapter? A Brotherhood chapter is essentially a school organization, similar to other organizations in your school, i.e. student council, Girls Inc., etc. It is managed by a chapter director who is typically an adult male volunteer (teacher or support staff) who agrees to schedule the weekly meetings, teach the leadership curricula, and participate in other Brotherhood events and activities. Starting a chapter is fairly simple, just follow the four steps below.
* Note: Schools are free to pay chapter directors a stipend just as they do other organizational leaders and coaches.
