"The Region 10 Conferences last year were some of my first exposures to the CASC family, so if you’ve never been to a CASC conference, this is a great opportunity! Even if you have attended other conferences, this conference is a great opportunity to build new skills, expand your network, & have fun! I sincerely hope you’ll join us!”

“To me, CASC is more than an ordinary organization. CASC is my source of inspiration and motivation– this organization empowers me to strive towards becoming a better version of myself. CASC reminds me that we as students have the ability to make impactful change in the world around us.”

CASC Scholarship

  • For over 70 years, the California Association of Student Councils has been the state’s student-run organization focusing on youth leadership. CASC serves student councils and their advisors, as well as all other young leaders and students who want to make a difference in their community. Through peer-to-peer leadership training and conferences, CASC provides students and advisors the opportunity to develop leadership skills, network with other students and advisors, and become empowered. CASC also lobbies for students and better schools at the state and local levels.​

  • There are none! We are proud to have an extremely diverse group of students and advisors participate in our programs. Some come to our programs with years of leadership experience and extracurricular activities while others come to our programs with none. Everyone learns and grows from our programs in different ways. Anybody who wishes to develop their leadership skills is welcome to join our program.

  • You can get involved in a number of ways:

    1. Attend a statewide CASC program – summer camp, SABE, SABLE, or YASC

    2. Attend a region conference with your ASB or other student leaders

    3. Contact your local region president and get involved with your region

    4. Become a part of the governing body of CASC by applying for state council

  • You can check out our programs directory by clicking on the "PROGRAMS" tab!

  • CASC is unique from other organizations in a variety of ways:

    1. Peer-to-Peer Training: Rather than adults teaching curriculum and teambuilding to students, at CASC events highly-trained students lead most of the activities.

    2. CASC conferences focus on teaching students HOW to do things rather than WHAT to do. We provide skills and knowledge that will go farther than a dance theme or fundraising idea. The skills and curriculum CASC encourages students to think critically and teaches students how to apply curriculum to any and every part of their lives.

    3. CASC recognizes and supports the power of youth: This is an organization run FOR students BY students to ensure that all the needs of students are heard and met. We have high school and college students voting and making decisions alongside adults on the Board of Directors.

  • Check out our guide to attend a program for free! It should answer all of your questions as well as provide instructions on how to acquire scholarships from either CASC or local organizations! If you have further questions, contact the CASC Office or the State Development Director.

  • Whether you are a current student, alumni, parent, or any other stakeholder of the organization, you can help send students to CASC conferences to gain a life-changing experience. Any amount, small or big, will help students obtain a scholarship to attend programs. Donate today!

  • Regions are divided into twelve different areas of California, covering all 58 counties. It is based on your school location and you can find out your region by clicking on the 'Regions' tab.
