Chapter Advisor: An adult who works with youth in their school or community organization.

An ISTEP chapter advisor can be a teacher, an adult who works with another youth organization in your community (4-H, FFA, church groups, scout troops, etc.), or your local Community Partnership. Even if your Community Partnership contact isn’t your chapter advisor, they can aid in providing ideas, resources and materials. *You can find their contact information at > Resources > Community Partnership Interactive Map.

ISTEP takes a hands-on approach to leadership, allowing youth to take the initiative in planning and implementing activities. The role of an advisor includes, but isn’t limited to, assisting with planning and implementing activities, helping guide your chapter through the 5 Step Planning Process (which can be found in the Street Marketing Events section of this guide), ensuring chapter members follow through with their plans, and gathering youth consent forms.
