Unfortunately, individuals will not be able to complete our application to start a Club if they are not formally affiliated with a host organization.
Clubs must be affiliated with a non-profit host organization (ie. a school, library, community-based organization, etc) and have a Decision Maker, someone who is employed by the host organization and who can sign the participation agreement, which outlines the expected responsibilities of the Club's host location. A Club's decision maker can also be a Facilitator. See more here.
That said, parents are more than welcome to lead Club sessions as a Club's facilitator. Once the Decision Maker completed a Club Application and has signed the participation agreement to start the Club, parents can follow the instructions from our FAQ on how to volunteer as a Facilitator for an approved Club.
