What kind of time commitment is required to run a chapter?

Leading an Active Minds chapter is a moderate time commitment that will likely require a few hours each week for planning and meetings, with more time dedicated around large events or initiatives. One of the most important things to focus on in the early stages of starting a chapter is recruiting a dedicated student leadership board that can share the responsibilities of the chapter. We ask that chapters meet at least three times and hold at least one event or program each term. It’s important to remember that you can determine how much of a time commitment running a chapter becomes by setting realistic goals and expectations and delegating tasks among all leaders
