Yearbook Staff Recruitment


  • Don't have an intro class/pre-requisite for yearbook?
    Recruit from courses that work on similar skills: Pre-AP/AP English, art, desktop publishing, etc.


  • Take current yearbook students on a visit to feeder schools to recruit incoming freshmen. Promote the fun parts of your program! Bring samples of photos your staff has taken, and past yearbooks.

  •  Work with your counselors to set up certain requirements or an application process to be on staff. 

  • Don't have a choice? Have students fill out a personality inventory and use their strengths to assign them job positions. Not everyone has to work on yearbook spreads or take photos. 

  • Hand out flyers at registration meetings, parent night meetings, in classrooms, etc. Put them everywhere to give your program more exposure and to get more applicants.
