Student Council Summer Leadership Workshop


Student Council Leadership Workshop provides students the opportunities to meet and exchange ideas with other student council members, learn about student council issues, and discover their own leadership potential which will help to build a better world in which to live.

The Student Council Leadership Workshop also offers a special Advisor's Council for any advisor wishing to attend. Special sessions are held daily with the advisor's council to network with each other and share ideas, as well as learn new ones.

Student Council Workshop has been rated as one of the best leadership training programs in the state. Some of the ideas that workshop delegates learn include goal setting, organization skills, communication skills, meeting skills, leadership skills and many other leadership techniques.
