What is Students For Life?

Students For Life is a national pro-life advocacy organization with regional chapters all across The United States. Student groups exist on many middle, high school, college, university, medical, and law school campuses in all 50 states! Visit the Students For Life website to learn more about who they are & what they believe and do.

What is a Students For Life group?

A Students For Life (SFL) group is typically a group of high school or college students who join together to advocate for a common cause: to protect all human life from the moment of conception!

The primary goals of a SFL group are to connect like-minded students and foster pro-life community, spread awareness in the student body and surrounding community about abortion and its consequences, serve pregnant moms and families in your community, and educate students on various aspects of the life movement so they can take an educated stand for LIFE.

The club typically holds regular meetings once every week or every two weeks, depending on the size and availability of the group. Special events are usually hosted once or twice per month.

What does a typical meeting look like?

A Students For Life meeting can typically last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on your school & what you work out with your administrators (if you are holding your meetings during school hours). Here’s a sample Students For Life Meeting template. You can print out this customizable template to help plan your meetings.

How can I promote the group & get students involved?

 When starting up a Students For Life group on campus, you want to be sure to promote it well to ensure that every student:

  • Knows you exist!
  • Knows what your group is up to and how they can get involved

One of the best ways to promote the group is through social media! Almost everyone in the age group you’re trying to reach has an Instagram account by now, so utilize this tool to promote your club and advertise meeting/event dates.

Check out this guide to setting up an Instagram account for your group.

Another way to promote the group is through school announcements or newsletters. If you are in high school or middle school, ask your administration if you can announce club meeting dates or events during the morning announcements over the PA system.

Then, there’s always the old-fashioned method: paper flyers! Use Canva or another digital design software to draw up a quick flyer for your next meeting or event & hang it up around your school hallways or college campus!

P.S. Make sure to get permission from your school (whether that’s a Student Affairs coordinator or other administrator) before hanging up or handing out flyers!

Be creative & tailor your advertisements to your school’s primary mode of communicating with students about upcoming events. Maybe that’s an email newsletter that goes out weekly to students or a bulletin board in a high-traffic hallway.
