♥ You are a happy, positive person who loves to have fun and try new things.
♥ You agree with the 4 G’s that the Happsters and the Squad is founded on:
- Gathering (Coming together with your Squad to form a community)
- Growth (Always up for learning new things and personal growth)
- Giving (Giving back globally and your local community)
- Gratitude (Finding ways to be grateful for what you have in your life)
The reason I started my own Happsters Squad:
A large part of the reason I started the Happsters was because I graduated from college and really wanted to connect with other positive, happy people locally. One thing led to another and I ended up creating this blog and focusing more on the online side of things for a few years. 5 years went by and I realized something was missing! I hadn’t connected with local happy people the way I had set out to when I first began. That is why I’m so excited to finally get to launch my own group in San Diego and eventually groups all across the country. I hope you’ll join me and the Happsters community in connecting in a deep, meaningful way with these groups.
We are proud to support Girls on the Run International.
Girls on the Run 10-week programs encourage positive emotional, social, mental and physical development. Girls from 3rd-8th grade discuss challenges they face at this age and also develop important strategies and skills to help them navigate life experiences. At the end of each three month session, the girls participate in a 5K event, which gives the girls a tangible understanding of the confidence that comes through accomplishment, as well as a framework for setting and achieving life goals.
Happsters Squads work closely with Girls on the Run in two main ways:
- Every Happsters Squad that is created helps fund a scholarship for a middle-school girl to participate in a Girls on the Run 10-week program.
- Local Happsters Squads work with nearby Girls on the Run Councils to volunteer at their 5K races and offer help in other ways throughout the year.
Q: Who runs each city’s Happsters Squad?
A: We hand-pick an amazing leader for every city who leads the squad for the year and organizes each event.
Q: How are the days/times of the events chosen?
A: Once all of the members officially sign up for a squad, they join a private Facebook group where the leader will give a few dates and times for the month for everyone to vote on. All events will be held after normal work hours or on weekends.
Q: How do you decide which cities to expand to?
A: If you’re interested in joining a squad near you, be sure to fill out the application. We expand to locations where we have a large number of applicants.
