QOM – October 2018 Posted October 5, 2018 by NationalSAVE


Thank you for responding to the October SAVE Promise Club Question of the Month! Please answer the question below:  How does your SAVE Promise Club work as a team and how can you work better?

    Spartan Accompanies works as a team by ensuring everyone’s voices are heard. Regardless of conflicts in opinions, we have no difficulty discussing all perspectives by taking all opinions into account. After deciding on a solution, we work fluidly towards making our plans reality while noting how they can be better in the future. We efficiently set goals and stop at nothing to reach them. We take plenty of time out of our day to list the pros and cons of our ideas before deciding on it. However, we can work better if we place the faith we have in our own ideas into those held by others.

    Our club makes sure to plan, set up, organize, etc together to make sure that not just one person is carrying the whole load. Our SAVE Club has been very on top of planning weeks to get the SAVE promise club message across and we’re all very passionate about getting all schools and people all over the country to feel safe and like they have a place. We could work on getting everyone to participate equally, but that comes with time!

    At Steele Canyon, our Save Promise Club leaders meet every week on Tuesdays and we work as a team to discuss and collaborate ideas on how to grow our club. We talk about the pros and cons of our previous meets and share our ideas and thoughts on how to grow and perfect our club. Lately one of our focuses has been on strengthening our use of social media. We are very aware that social media is an important thing in many teenagers lives so we want to focus on promoting our club through our sites and that way we can grow our club.

    At Steele Canyon, our Save Promise Club works as a team by having our leaders meet every week on Tuesdays and discussing how our previous meets went with the entire group. We discuss our pros and cons and collaborate new ideas to perfect and grow our club. We try incorporating school events and activities but with our schools schedule being so full we often struggle with following along with the Save Promise Calendar. Therefore we work together to do as much as we can to promote our club. We can work better by using our social media sites more often and in better ways. Our leaders have been recently discussing different ways to get our club out there because we are very aware that social media is where most of every teenagers attention is each day so we want to focus on strengthening our use in social media.

    My SAVE Promise club meets every other Wednesday, and when we have someone new we start with a fun ice breaker! We come up with ideas on what to do for the school and preventing violence. We give everyone a chance to speak their mind and give their amazing ideas! One of the biggest things we do is strongly encourage to work our problems out. We do not believe we should hold grudges against each other, and we make it known that Promise club is not about being angry and exclusion. We treat each other with respect. One thing we could work on is the committees getting together before a big event. I think it will be helpful so that way everyone knows what’s going on.

    As you may know, Optimism Preventative Services is a community-based nonprofit, which requires an imaginable amount of teamwork! We all work as unit in countless ways; keeping everyone updated on all OPS events in our group chat (and making sure they all respond), attending weekly meetings afterschool & completing tasks together at these meetings, looking out for one another in & out of the organization, etc. We can work better by staying as committed as we have before and making sure our new members are comfortable with the rest of us (which will happen in no time)!

    My SAVE Promise Club has regular meetings before school and on Fridays during club time where we discuss new events and recognize outgoing members of the club. This also gives us time to introduce new members and gives officers a chance to meet and talk. We even invite special guests to come visit the school, everyone is encouraged to take notes and all are welcome to bring in new ideas. The meetings are primarily student led and we have decided to meet in the library so as to attract people to the club.

    My SAVE Promise Club works as a team by keeping in touch through apps like Remind, Slack, and regular text messaging through our cell phone numbers. During meetings, we speak about the upcoming days/week that will occur, such as Start With Hello Week and Say Something Week and we plan activities for those days and other days. This allows for all of the members of the club to have a voice in which activity we plan to do. I am available 24/7, so the members can call, text, or email me whenever they want and hopefully I am awake and not busy to answer them. Closer to the middle of the school year is most likely the times when clubs seem to fall apart and are not that organized and energetic as they were in the beginning because the stress and tiredness of school gets to them. But, I will try my all time best to make sure that, that doesn’t happen because we are a strong team and we will forever be a strong team. Love you STAND Club ❤️

    My save promise club works as a team by keeping updated through texts and attending meetings and having different roles in our meetings such as president and Vice President who help plan things out, but we all contribute in our own ways. I think occasionally we get some awkward silence at meetings when people just aren’t sure what to say or ideas aren’t flowing very well, after all our meetings do take place at the end of the day so perhaps people are just tired, but I feel that we can work on that more and maybe have more people speak up during meetings when it gets silent.

    My SAVE Promise Club chapter works as a team by having weekly meetings with open discussion. We meet every Wednesday to discuss the weekly plans, upcoming events, important action campaigns, and educate eachother on various issues realting to violence. These meetings are important to our club as we are able to build a strong sense of community and trust in one another, while also being effective in our planning. Additionally, our club officers frequently meet outside of our Wednesday meetings and text regularly to ensure all our activities and meetings run smoothly. By having this dual system, the dynamics of our club often function better and much more gets done. During meetings we also often break off into smaller groups of individuals for deeper discussion and it often tends to make our activities run smoother as details are more closely looked at. While we have a strong team sense and get things done, it is easy for our meetings to derail. I can work harder to ensure that meetings stay on track and that everything gets done in an orderly fashion. I can also work harder to make sure everyone feels as though they have equal parts in the decision making and activity executions.

    My SAVE Promise club works as a team by frequent communication between the officers and club members. At our meetings we hold open floor discussions about nonviolence and ways that we can help prevent violence in our community. Our goal is to make sure every member feels that they have a voice. As the president I try to always be open to or available for all of our club members, I feel it’s important that they know my advisor and I are a resource and are there to support them in whatever way possible. Nonviolence is a group effort. And I know it’s cliche, but after all, there is no I in Team.
