New Chapter Request (NCR) Resources


As a New Chapter Request (NCR) we are excited you have continued to take the steps to becoming a full fledged chapter of SHP. By now you’ve watched the recorded overview of SHP narrated by our founder Luke Mickelson, completed the new chapter application, and attended the Core Team Zoom meeting with your Regional mentor. The last step is to get to an in-person training weekend to learn the ins and outs of running a successful chapter of SHP.

Below are some resources/links that should help give you some more information of SHP and how to begin the process of starting a chapter.

Take a look at the Chapter President’s Agreement that you will be required to sign and agree to before starting a Chapter of SHP in your community.

Modify this and use as your own. Present at clubs (Lions, Rotary, Optimist, etc.), schools, family advocate groups, etc. Get out and tell your story to start building momentum.
