Promotional Resources

Running regular awareness and promotion activities in your area can grow your Group or help you open new Sections.

This page is focussed on youth member promotions – please see Leader Build for information on the leader recruitment program.

This Promotional Resources page has a range of tips, ideas and templates that you can customise for local promotions. There are also links to posters and flyers that you can simply download and print. This page will be added to as more resources are developed.

Note: Some templates will be downloaded as word documents and will have sections highlighted in yellow to be customised. Simply edit these documents to reflect your groups name and whatever else you need added e.g. date of an open night, leaders name etc.
