The Ohio Association of Student Councils, "June 2018"

Big picture

The Ohio Association of Student Councils is an organization dedicated to the teaching of leadership skills, organizational skills, and people skills valuable to the members and officers of all student organizations!


OASC partners with the iBELIEVE Foundation to offer 7 different calendar weeks at multiple college campuses of summer workshop programming! Summer workshop is a 5 day, 4 night summer camp opportunity for student leaders in the middle level program (entering grades 7-9) and the senior high program (entering grades 10-12). These summer programs encourage the development of leadership skills, improves understanding of setting and achieving worthy goals, and inspires young leaders to accept challenges and responsibilities, so they may return to their communities with knowledge, convictions and understanding which will empower them to better all they encounter. Our summer programming also facilitates life long connections between student leaders from all over the state of Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and most recently, Kentucky.

We hope you will come to workshop with a desire and the spirit to learn, to try new things, and to share your talents, ideas, and feelings with others. If you do that, we promise you will leave with more information than you ever thought you could remember, with more new friends than you thought you could make, and with a feeling that you can make a positive difference in your school, community, and in the lives of the people you know!

The cost of workshop is $325/delegate. This includes the program materials in addition to room & board for the 5 days at workshop. While scholarships are available, we know this can be a large investment of money for many families - so we want you to start planning now so you can join us in the summer of 2018! If you are in need of a scholarship to attend summer workshop, please fill out this scholarship application, so we can ensure those who are most in need have the assistance required in order to be a part of our summer!

Most students describe their experience as unforgettable, life changing, inspiring, motivating and "one of the best weeks" of their lives. We hope to see you at one of TWELVE workshops being offered! Click here to register today!

OASC Branding Survey

Students, parents and administrators - Please complete this brief survey so we are able to evaluate how to best serve all student leaders!

As shared at State Conference, in order to bring sufficient revenue to OASC and also expose as many student leaders to our programming, we need attendance at our year round events to increase! While the feedback on our events continues to reflect the high quality programming and experiences we have always offered our students and member schools, attendance continues to steadily decline. In order to evaluate how to expose more students to our programming, continue to recruit new schools and follow the organizations mission statement of "serving all leaders" we would like some feedback on our organizations name, brand, and current calendar of events. We appreciate you taking 5 minutes to help OASC continue to evolve with our students and schools!
