A non-profit partner of Ohio's secondary schools since 1953, The Ohio Association of Student Leaders provides transformative leadership education and development experiences for middle and high school students. We are dedicated to the teaching of leadership skills, organizational skills, and people skills valuable to the members and officers of all student organizations. OASL empowers leaders from ALL student organizations to pursue their individual dreams, and embrace their individual passions for one common goal: to create positive change in our Ohio schools & communities.

OASL wants all students to find their purpose and to refine & enhance their skills to meet the ever-changing needs within our schools. Our students learn how to better work together in today’s world and discover new & effective paths to success. OASL strives to connect diverse student leaders who are serving in leadership roles to others who also want to positively impact the world.

For the past 67 summers, Summer Workshop has been OASL’s signature and premier experience that has been described by many as life-changing and the highlight of their summer. This packet includes all the information you’ll need to nominate and register one or more outstanding student leaders in Middle Level (entering grades 7-9) or Senior High student leaders (entering grades 10-12) for OASL’s 5 day, 4 night summer camp opportunity.

These summer programs encourage the development of leadership skills, improve understanding of setting and achieving worthy goals, and inspire young leaders to accept challenges and responsibilities. Our challenge to them is that they return to their schools & communities with knowledge, convictions and understanding which will empower them to positively impact all they encounter. Our summer programming also facilitates life long connections between Ohio’s student leaders.

The Ohio Association of Student Leaders invites your students to be a part of our organization. OASL will positively impact and elevate student leaders in all organizations, clubs, athletic teams and school groups in Ohio. We hope you will support your students as they learn to serve, connect, and inspire their peers, their families, their schools, their communities and their world.

*In the event "in person" workshops are not possible due to COVID-19, we will once again utilize our growth mindsets to transform our leadership workshops into an impactful and engaging online experiences for our participants!

Registration for Summer Workshop will open on February 1, 2021.

We look forward to learning and growing with you this summer!
