Holding movie screenings, tabling at lunch, getting a veggie burger in your cafeteria, cutting out dissection at your school, throwing a vegan food party, organizing a protest, holding a vegan bake sale, collecting blankets, food, and other supplies to donate to your local animal shelter …

What do all of these things have in common? They’re all things YOU can do to help animals when you start a student group at your school!

There’s no better (or more fun) way to help animals at your school than by starting a student group. It’s SUPER easy—check out our brand new student group starter pack here. Inside, you’ll find tons of help and ideas—plus sign-up sheet and full-page flier that you can edit yourself to include the name of your group and times of your meetings. Sweet!

Here’s how to start a student group at your school:

  1. Print out our student group starter pack here, and follow the instructions inside.
  2. E-mail us at peta2@peta2.com if you need any help!

That’s IT! What are you waiting for? Get printin’! :)

P.S.—You can get 5,000 Street Team points for starting a student group at your school, just e-mail us at StreetTeam@peta2.com when you’re all set up!

      Just start by straight off emailing the school with any questions on where to get started. The first step it always the hardest and it is so easy to procrastinate, just do it now! Maybe look though the starter kit for some ideas, and ask your teachers if it is okay for you to hang up some flyers around your school to promote your club, assuming it will be aporved. Get an adult (like a favorite teacher) to help you out, its easier to get things going when you know people are counting on it! Good luck and have fun!

    I want to start a group at my school, but what should I do if I end up with a bunch of bacon junkies and fur lovers who just want to help the “important” ad “cute” animals?

      If you do get people like that, what can it hurt? Maybe you’ll be able to change a few minds, maybe explained the way the meat and fur industry exploits animals (I wouldn’t suggest showing any vids at first- the gore and blood might be a little too tramatic for people not uesed to the idea yet). Maybe explain that the idea of your club is for ALL animals, and if they’re only interested in the ‘cute’ animals, just let them know that even just singing a petition for maybe an animal that they consider ‘ugly’ or not as important will not do them any harm…just have some fun with it…! I went vegetarian straight off after reading just one leaflet! Good luck, hope this helps!

I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall.

Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
