We are looking for students who are passionate about our ocean and looking for leadership opportunities and fun! There are many ways to get involved with the Surfrider Foundation and any one or all of them helps contribute to our core mission of engaged activism.
Ready to get started?
Submit a request to tell us how you want to get involved! *NOTE: Due to capacity issues, we are not currently accepting applications for elementary / middle school level clubs.

Starting a Surfrider Student Club Information
Students, administrators and teachers can start a club at their local school. Every district works a little differently, but most schools club programs need to be approved by the school administration first. Visit your school office and ask questions about the process for getting a Surfrider club approved. You need to fulfill certain requirements in order to receive an official charter from us.
Where do I find the club registration information?
Once you've filled out the request form above the criteria is emailed to you. The criterion is simple: three student officers, ten members, and a dedicated environmental service project for the year.
Do I need an advisor?
We do require an advisor for school clubs. At the elementary school level, any club activities must have an adult chaperone present. This is similar to typical school field trip requirements.
Is there a cost to start a club?
There is no membership requirement. We do encourage you to still become a member.
Do I need to have parental waivers signed for all club members?
Yes. Anyone who participates at any sponsored or official Surfrider Foundation Club activity must sign a waiver form. Please contact the Youth Manager for copies.
