Social/political

with one comment

Where would you draw the line between a school organization being social and political? Would you sacrifice the political aspect of a group in order for it to be social and attract more people? How would you go on with changing the focus of the organization from social events to political events?

Please, discuss.

  1. I think you have to consider the mission and goals of the particular organization in order to get the answer that best fits your organization. School organizations run the gamut on the scale from social to volunteer to activist (maybe this is more like a grid). You should probably also consider the needs of the students involved in the organization and why they got involved. Maybe they perceived as something more social?

    I do think school organizations should have a balance. There’s a time and a place for everything. You need to keep the social to keep students interested in the org, but the political aspect should be there too to build skills and get things done (if that’s the mission).
