Ohio Association of Student Leaders

June Newsletter

For the past 68 summers, the Ohio Association of Student Leaders has been offering leadership programming to student leaders across the state of Ohio. OASL’s programs encourage the development of leadership skills, improve understanding of setting and achieving worthy goals, and inspire young leaders to accept challenges and responsibilities.

Student(s) will spend 5 days and 4 nights at Capital University learning and growing alongside other like-minded student leaders. Students learn how to better work together in today’s world and discover new & effective paths to success. OASL strives to connect inclusive student leaders who are serving in leadership roles with others who also want to positively impact the world. 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.

Led by students and mental health experts, Work2BeWell and NASSP (National Association of Secondary School Principals) are hosting a webinar series focused on helping teens reduce stress and proactively care for their own mental health.

Given the turbulence our kids have lived through the past few years, this webinar series is a fantastic opportunity for students to learn practical strategies for self-care.

Here’s a breakdown of the sessions we’ll be offering:

Emotional First Aid Kit, June 21, 2022 | 8:30 p.m. ET

In the Work2BeWell Mental Wellness Unit, students will create their own emotional first-aid kit. Their kit will include sounds, sights, touches, smells, trusted contacts (humans), and journaling (take action). The first-aid kit will prepare teens in helping to reduce stress in tense situations and proactively care for their mental health.

Critical Conversations, August 30, 2022 | 8:30 p.m. ET

In the Work2BeWell Heart-to-Heart Critical Conversations module, students

are provided with tools to be successful during difficult conversations. This

module prepares students for heart-to-heart conversations with parents,

peers, etc. prior to the conversations, and helps them navigate

conversations when they don’t go so well.

ECPR (Emotionally Connect, Partner, and Respond), September 20, 2022 | 8:30 p.m. ET

Most people know how to respond to a physical health crisis, but few, regardless of age, know how to respond to an emotional health crisis. The ECPR lesson covers important aspects of youth mental illness, including how common it is, facts on suicide, warning signs, how to detect a crisis in their friends, how to connect a friend with people and resources that can help, and much more. The lesson will prepare youth to help and advocate for their peers without claiming responsibility for maintaining another person’s safety.
