Tools and Resources


Here are important things to know, and even more importantly, what to avoid.

Red flag

If you have been involved in an organisation for more than several years (say 3 to 5 years, about the time it takes to earn a college degree), it's time for you to move on and leave it. Of course, if you want to stay in touch with people in the group, feel free to do so. If such contact is forbidden, or people do not leave or graduate, that's a big red flag.
