How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

OASC believes that the student council is an educational instrument
designed to provide actual learning experiences in leadership and
opportunities for practice in the qualities of good citizenship
necessary for the effective membership in a democratic society. Our four basic purposes are:

To promote the concept of the modern student council movement.

To
provide opportunities for the training of leaders, the practice of good
citizenship, and the promotion of democracy as a way of life.

To provide a medium of exchange for ideas, activities, and problems.

To assist individual schools in matters directly related to the student council organization.

OASC provides leadership training workshops, retreats, conferences, publications, and other communications designed to fulfill these purposes and to foster personal leadership skills in middle school and high school students throughout the state of Ohio.

Program 1

OASC State Conference

The OASC State Conference is a state-wide conference for all schools
that hold membership in the Ohio Association of Student Councils.
Non-member schools are not permitted to attend because this conference
is the official business meeting of the organization. The election of
the student and adult representatives to the Executive Board, a "state
of the organization" report, keynote speakers, small group discussions
and other sharing activities highlight this three day event.

Program 2

OASC Fall and Winter Retreats

OASC retreats are weekend overnight workshops. Both Middle Level and Senior
High students have the opportunity to go to a retreat. Each retreat is
a twenty-four hour long intense leadership training workshop that
focuses on a specific aspect of leadership. Each retreat has its own
theme and its own particular variety of experiences that its delegates
go through. This gives a delegate new information to take back and use
at their school student council each time they attend. Retreats are
offered to both Middle level students and Senior High Students in
November and March.

Program 3

OASC Summer Workshops

Each summer the OASC sponsors an extensive student council
leadership workshop program. The summer schedule includes five-day
workshops for Middle Level students at three different leadership levels, and five-day workshops for High
School students at two different leadership levels.

Our focus at workshop is to allow students to learn
by doing. Special emphasis is placed on experiential learning
activities and mock student council situations. Large and small group
discussions are also used. We cover such topics as group dynamics,
communication, meeting & organizational skills, and effective
projects. All of this is done in a relaxed atmosphere where
students learn and have fun.
