PICKING STAFFCongratulations! You have taken on the task of being the record keeper of your school’s memories. Setting up your yearbook team is going to be crucial to your success. Here are a few tips on recruiting staff:
- Talk to your co-workers. They may recommend students that are great at writing, have a knack for photography or are excellent at selling. All great skills that you want on your yearbook!
- Promote your yearbook club online, school newsletters, and announcements.
- Try and get a good mix of students from all grades to ensure that you have returning staff each year.
- Make it fun – this is going to be hard work, and that hard work should be rewarded. Be clear about your expectations up front and celebrate your milestones along the way. Yearbook should be a club that kids are vying to get on. For more info on the specific roles, you want to fill, check out the Deadlines and Timelines chapter in our Yearbook Curriculum Guide.
