Live SunSmart Chapter

We encourage you to start a local Live SunSmart chapter in your community or high school. The following information is important to consider before starting your own chapter:

Local Chapter

Local Live SunSmart chapters are chartered by the Board of Directors as local vehicles for fostering our mission. Each chapter elects its own officers and plans its programs to reflect the needs and interests of its local membership. Typical activities may include regular meetings, coordinating skin screenings and information events, producing newsletters, general awareness, publicity and fundraising.

What to look for in a local chapter volunteer

  • Ability to serve as a local resource to Live SunSmart partners and sponsors
  • Ability to promote public awareness of skin cancer and melanoma prevention
  • Ability to help raise funds in their community in order to support the Live SunSmart mission
  • Pledges to act as a role model by demonstrating the appropriate way to prevent skin cancer

High school chapter

Our high school chapters bring the work of the foundation to high school communities. Participation in a Live SunSmart high school chapter is a great to give back to your community and accrue volunteer activity hours. We encourage you to connect with your local high school chapter and to participate in the programs and activities offered.

To form a high school chapter

  • You must be a high school student in good academic standing.
  • The volunteer chapter must be started within the high school either as a school club or permanent activity within a school club.
  • The volunteer chapter must abide by the rules and regulations that govern student activities at the high school.
  • A chapter must take part in a skin cancer and melanoma awareness activity at least once per academic year.

Foundation support for chapters

Live SunSmart’s volunteer board and staff work closely with the leader of each chapter to establish effective, high-impact programs. Chapter leaders learn the fundamentals of launching innovative programs and are provided with ample guidance and training.

Live SunSmart chapters are established only after an individual or group first applies to start a chapter, works with Live SunSmart Foundation to establish the chapter, and a chapter charter is signed by chapter officers and a Live SunSmart advisor.
