With CASC, you will discover opportunities for youth to develop skills essential for effective leadership and management. Workshops and conferences held annually throughout the State of California provide training in:
making effective presentations, facilitating meetings
resolving conflict, working as a team
Students work in groups led by a trained high school or college students to practice skills and to reflect on their experiences.CASC provides opportunities for youth to impact policy at the district and state levels. Numerous bills have been introduced in the state legislature as a result of student proposals. We have conducted programs and retreats for ASBs, entire classes, youth advisory councils in cities, and entire student bodies. At one school, CASC curriculum is taught in every classroom several times each week by students enrolled in the leadership class! No idea is too big to be explored! We are here to help you develop the programs of your dreams.
