What is a New Global Normal Chapter?
A chapter is a group of youth volunteers that work to encourage intercultural communication in their local school or university community. Chapters run a local intercultural buddy program as well as activities and organise events aimed at promoting intercultural communication. Chapters also manage social media accounts for their community.
Who Can Be a Chapter Leader?
If you are passionate about intercultural communication, then you could be a chapter leader! We are looking for collaborative, persevering students at schools and universities who are driven to make positive change.
Why Should I Start a Chapter?
By establishing a New Global Normal chapter, you join the movement to unite a divided world and begin a conversation in your local community about the importance of bridging across cultural divides and recognising the value in our collective humanity. Starting a chapter grants you access to a global community of youth striving to promote intercultural communication. Chapter leaders also are given access to a network of the New Global Normal leadership team and current chapter leaders to offer support and provide a space for collaboration.
What Support Do I Get?
We provide resources, support and advice to chapter leaders to help them grow, run and maintain their chapter community. Along with access to online resources such as a Canva Pro subscription and a Gatheround subscription, all leaders are given a unique space on our Mighty Networks dedicated to their local chapter. Chapter leaders are given access to our intercultural exchange online program, and will be given a page on our website dedicated to their chapter. Chapter leaders are also invited to join a private network of current New Global Normal members and fellow chapter leaders to lean on for support. We also provide a budget for events and activities when you need it, a brand kit, and help in publicising your chapter to your local community!
