SCHOOL CHAPTERS

High schools and college chapters are an essential part of WWPF's heart screening movement. With sudden cardiac arrest affecting such a large number of young people annually, the Who We Play For School Chapters program looks to include passionate college and high school students in the fight SCA.

What do WWPF Chapters do?

-Take part in the national movement to reduce the incidence of
Sudden Cardiac Arrest in teens and young adults
-Fundraise in order to provide affordable heart screenings nationwide
-Volunteer at heart screenings and other events
-Spread awareness about Sudden Cardiac Arrest as a public
health issue and about the importance of heart screenings

Steps to becoming a Chapter

-Fill out a new chapter application here
-Interview
Once we have processed your new chapter application, we will set up a time to meet with you
in person if you are within a reasonable distance to a Who We Play For representative.
If it’s not possible to meet in person, then we will conduct a phone interview.
-Recruit Your Team
Now that you have officially been accepted as a Who We Play For chapter you can begin to expand your team.  People are the most important part of any organization so make sure your team members are committed and available for the year.  We recommend a core group of 5-7 people that are willing to make Who We Play For a main priority and can fill the designated roles of a Who We Play For Chapter.  Some schools require a minimum of 10 members to be instated as an organization.
-Register Your Organization With Your School
Find a faculty advisor and use our templates to create a constitution and complete any required paperwork for becoming a registered student organization.  The registration deadline is usually a few months before the beginning of each semester, so be sure to stay on top of the dates.
