Mission Statement

The Coalition for the Advancement of Student Activities (CASA) is committed to empowering student leaders and advisers through its diverse program offerings. CASA was founded to satisfy the need for well-trained student activity advisers and coaches. CASA began sponsoring adviser training seminars in 1993 and took over the sponsorship of the Student Leadership Training Program (SLTP) in 1994.
The SLTP is an experiential learning laboratory where students and their advisers can learn how to make a difference in their schools and community. The key word is "how", because leadership is action. The SLTP empowers responsible action.

Program 1

The Student Leadership Training Program (SLTP) exists to empower student leaders. The SLTP targets middle and high school students to attend its conferences and learn how student leadership can foster change. At these programs, students learn critical leadership skills from a team of committed volunteers. During the past 18 years the SLTP has reached over 5,000 students, many of whom continue to volunteer with the program. The SLTP conferences expose young people to the responsibility leaders have to their communities, and encourage students to choose to make a positive difference. Graduates of the program demonstrate this commitment to proactive leadership in their schools and communities. The students in the program gather over 2,000 pounds of food for local food banks every summer, organize read-a-thons for elementary students, take action against bullying in their schools, and lead countless service projects that make a difference. The SLTP is about much more than leadershicreating positive role models, and enabling young people to become proactive, productive members and contributors to society.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"From the beginning we have sought to develop a learning atmosphere for our students and advisers that is free of the normal compare and compete environment of the school environment.  Ours is a leadership laboratory wherein all 147 leadership skills may be practiced and learned.  We demand a high level of training from our staff and have developed a 100 hour staff development program to insure that they can "walk their talk.""
