Creating Groups

REV Groups are a great way to connect with friends and family. They are also a great way for impact leaders — leaders of character looking to make a positive impact — to connect with, grow and inspire their communities. 

As a group leader, you are responsible to help guide the group and report any activity that goes against the REV User Agreement. Groups should not engage in activity that goes against the REV User Agreement.

How to Create a Group on the REV Web App

Navigate to the Groups tab from the top menu bar and click Create a Group.
