Chapters make up the core of our organization; they are student-led, local organizations based within high schools that distribute our educational pillars to students. Chapters function like after-school clubs, and are intended to meet once a week (either in-person or virtually).

<aside> ✅ Chapter registration is open! We are currently accepting chapters 🎉


Interested? Here's what starting a chapter looks like:

  1. Join the Slack channel to stay updated and meet our board!

    This doesn't mean you must start a chapter, it's just for interest! To get the Slack invite link, please email

  2. Complete a directory form that will be shared once you join Slack.

    Once you complete it, you'll be assigned a Student Relations and Community (SRC) advisor!

  3. Attend an introductory call with your SRC advisor.

  4. Find teammates to join you in your chapter's leadership team.

  5. Register as a chapter once you and your team are ready.

  6. Attend orientation, a blend of calls with IDOT board and hands-on activities.

  7. 🎉🎉🎉 That's it!

This entire process, from start to finish, takes about 2-3 weeks — your chapter could get started as soon as 2 weeks from now! Your assigned SRC advisor (check them out here!) will be there to support you every step of the way. Email to join our community today!
