Start a CHAARG Chapter at Your University!
CHAARG is growing + growing fast. We are looking for rockstars to join #TeamCHAARG as Ambassadors ++ start CHAARG Chapters at their universities. Our Ambassadors are the core of National CHAARG + the *presidents* of their CHAARG Chapters [student organization at universities]. They live + breathe the CHAARG Mantra, they have a passion for empowering girls to embrace a happy + healthy lifestyle, ++ most importantly -- they want to inspire girls to #JoinTheMovement.
There are three things we look in a CHAARG Ambassador — so before applying, check yo’self before you wreck yo’self [but seriously].
1] Passionate about health + fitness. We’re not asking for you to be a collegiate athlete — but, we’re looking for girls who are truly passionate about living a healthy lifestyle. From the beginning, CHAARG stood [+ still stands] for Changing Health, Attitudes + Actions to Recreate Girls. It’s important for girls to be physically healthy — but it’s also extremely important for girls to be mentally healthy. Our thought has always been that if you show girls that fitness can be FUN + help them find their passion for health + fitness, it will start a positive trend throughout other areas in their life, thus creating a healthy + happy lifestyle. Because really, that’s what life is all about — being happy.
2] Ability to inspire. We want you to be able to find ways to inspire yourself — inspire us — inspire this community. CHAARG is a community of thousands of uplifting + encouraging girls, all supporting one another’s goals — dreams — journeys in this little thing called life. As the Ambassador, you are the driving force that creates the in-person bonds between CHAARG girls in your Chapter [usually, HUNDREDS of girls!], builds motivation + inspires those around you. As the Ambassador, it's important that you live by the CHAARG mantra ++ have the ability to find creative + innovate ways to continue to keep the inspiration alive + present.
3] Thrives in a leadership role. [+ we’ll add to that: someone who is a little crazy -- after all, the crazy ones will change the world]. A CHAARG Chapter is run by a team of seven executive members, though that team may be *small*, they are #GIRLSTRONG! It is important that you *lead by example* -- you are not only the *face* of CHAARG at your university [girls will recognize you wherever you go!], you are the face of CHAARG within the Virtual Community.

What is a CHAARG Chapter?
A CHAARG Chapter is a health + fitness organization that allows girls to try new ways to sweat + make life long friends along the way. It is a registered student organization at universities run entirely by students. A typical size of a CHAARG Chapter during its first semester is 100 girls. Each week CHAARG Chapters partner with local health + fitness studios in the surrounding area of their university + invite their instructors to come in + teach a workout class to CHAARG members. From kickboxing, Pure Barre, salsa dancing to a cooking class — each week brings something different to give girls the opportunity to ignite their passion in fitness, no matter where they may be in their healthy + fitness journey.
Is there anything that would help my chances of being selected as the next CHAARG Ambassador?
The more interest you are able to show from your University as well as the more knowledge you have about the CHAARG community will help your chances of becoming selected as a CHAARG Ambassador! We encourage you to start by setting up a phone call with Jill Jernas - our expansion intern as well as UCF CHAARG Ambassador!
