Apply to become an official YDSA chapter

Before you apply, read over these tips:

  1. There is no rush to finish this application. The application will close in spring, so there is plenty of time to apply. Do not rush through the application. Sit down with your core leadership to think carefully about your chapter’s goals and priorities before you apply.
  2. Apply only when your chapter is established. Having around 10 consistent members and recurring meetings should be the goal before you sit down and fill out the application.
  3. Watch this video on how to fill out the application. The video should clarify why it is important to be recognized as an official chapter and also resolve any questions you might have while filling out the application.

If you have done all of the things above, fill out the application! Once you fill out the application, you should hear back on your status within one month, although sometimes the process can take a bit longer. If you need an update on the status of your application, please email [email protected].
