Serving Fresno, Inyo (Northern), Madera, Mariposa, Merced, Mono, San Joaquin, and Tuolumne Counties

Welcome to Region 5, serving Central California and most of the San Joaquin Valley! We train students how to be competent leaders and advocate for education-related changes in their communities. At our region conferences, you will meet new friends, learn about issues in the school system, and connect with local elected officials. We’re also always looking for people to join our region cabinet, which provides even more exciting opportunities in leadership, policy, and advocacy.


Please get in touch with me if you have any questions!







Attending your regional CASC leadership conference will equip you with the skills necessary to change your school’s environment for the better. CASC is an organization that advocates a peer-supported environment that allows students to speak out about their passions, whether it be in ASB or in another club or sport. Students enhance their leadership abilities such as public speaking, project planning, and organization in order to create positive change in their schools and the world.
