How to Adopt a College
Easy ways you can get active and empower students in your community to try vegan!
1. Check Out Schools in Your Area
Choose your state, province, or region from the search sidebar to find nearby campuses. A Google Maps link is at the top of each page for easy navigation!
You can also find enrollment and other info for colleges here:

2. Print 10 Weeks to Vegan Signup Forms and Pull-tab Signs
Did you know that research has shown that vegan challenges make a tremendous difference in getting people to commit? If you want to take your outreach to a new level, help get folks signed up for our 10 Weeks to Vegan email series.
- Download and print the signup form
- Download and print posters to hang around campus. Hang our animal poster, environment poster, food poster—or all three!
Vegan Outreach has a goal of signing up 80,000 people in the first half of 2020. It's a big number, but it's happening 10, 25, and 100 people at a time—we'd love your help!
3. Order Booklets
We recommend ordering our booklets with at least 3 weeks notice.
Vegan Outreach doesn’t sell booklets. We give them to people and they donate as they can afford. But we can only afford to do this because of donations from people who care about animals. If you can donate, please do, but if you can’t we will try to provide you with what you can use at colleges. For people without a history of leafleting with us, we start in small amounts for your first few orders and ask for a small donation for your first order to prevent fraud (like $10 for 100 booklets). After you hand those out and report your totals to us (see #5), we can give you more.
Order booklets and donate here!
4. Have fun on campus!
- Sign people up to try vegan with our 10 Weeks to Vegan challenge!
- Hang pull-tab posters around campus!
Tips for leafleting can be found here and in this great video! When activists are on campus leafleting, this is also a great opportunity to invite people who receive a leaflet to sign up for our 10 Weeks to Vegan series, which provides them with a deep foundation in veganism with ten points of contact right in their email inbox.
If you’re interested in learning more about getting signups for our 10 Weeks to Vegan challenge or volunteering with Vegan Outreach staff that may be coming through your area, please see the contact information here.
5. Report Your Totals
It helps us a lot when you report your totals—we can raise more funds to pay for our leafleting outreach program and it prevents us from duplicating your efforts.
Report your totals by sending an email to [email protected] and include:
- Date of outreach
- Outreach location – specify which college/school or non-school venue
- Send a photo of 10 Weeks to Vegan signups
- Number of which booklets you handed out — VO and non-VO — and number of VR views you had
- Anything interesting you’d like to add about your experience
You can check your numbers on your profile page by searching for your name in the Activist or Organization search bar on the right. Please allow three business days for numbers to appear.

Thank you and good luck!
