SAAPS CHAPTERS

Our national chapters work to bring the SAAPS mission to college campuses and cities across the United States. Whether it is through a speaker series, community-centric public service project, or an initiative unique to the chapter, SAAPS chapters work to inspire the next generation of South Asian American leaders.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What are SAAPS Chapters?


SAAPS Chapters are college campus or city-based organizations that further the ethic of public service within the South Asian American and broader community. While chapters are given wide lattitude in their function, they must work to further the broader SAAPS mission. Examples of past initiatives spearhead by SAAPS Chapters include speaker serieses, group discussions on current events, and community-centric public service projects. However, SAAPS Chapters are also highly encoruagd to craft programs and events specific to their communities. If you are interested in starting a SAAPS Chapter or would just like to learn more, please fill out the interest form above!




How do I start a SAAPS Chapter?


The first step to start a SAAPS Chapter is to fill out the interest form above. Afterwards, a member of our team will be in touch to schedule a short conversation to explain the simple process further. To expeditate the process, it is worth recruiting at least one more individual to co-lead the SAAPS Chapter with you. We find SAAPS Chapters with at least two leads to be the most successful!




What are a SAAPS Chapters responsibilities?


SAAPS Chapters are given wide lattitude to devise and implement their own programing as long as they are generally in line with our national vision. Therefore, SAAPS Chapter responsibilities are highly variable. One week you may find yourself leading a discussion with a prominent South Asian American public servant, while another week you may be coordinating a dinner discussion on global current events. The SAAPS Chapter, and hence your responsibilities, are up to you!




What if I can't start a SAAPS Chapter but I still want to help?


Please reach out to us at admin@saaps.org with specifically how you would like to help and what skills and experiences you think you would bring to the SAAPS team. We'll be in touch soon!
