The California Association of Student Leaders
A Note from the President
Former CEO of General Electric Jack Welch once said, “Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.” On behalf of the 2015-2016 CASL State Board, I would like to welcome you to CASL’s student-led website.
CASL is honored to present training opportunities for student leaders who serve their communities. Each day these student leaders work hard to foster inclusive cultures in their schools. From Leadership Development Days to our State Conference, CASL encourages student leaders across the state to unite. At these events student leaders share the ideas that make their leadership style effective.
We hope you will enjoy using the resources on this website throughout the year . If we are not acquainted sooner, we look forward to meeting you at the 2016 CASL State Conference on April 7th-11th in Ontario, California. We appreciate your support and dedication toward making our world a better place through student leadership.
-Armando Sanchez, President
Where did CASL Come from?
The California Association of Student Leaders (CASL) is an outgrowth of the work of its sister organization, the California Association of Directors of Activities (CADA). In 1996, the National Association of Student Councils (NASC) saw a need for a board of student leaders in the state of California, and asked CADA to take the lead on its formation. Since then, the two organizations have supported each other in their shared mission to develop student leaders in schools around California and beyond!
Your Roadmap to Leadership Success
The California Association of Student Leaders is proud to welcome you to our new, student-designed website. We invite you to explore the site and check out all the stops our State Board has laid out for your leadership adventure—from the Road Map to Improved School Climate and Culture, to the workshop downloadables in the Resources section and fundraising ideas in the State Conference section, we think you'll find everything you need to embark on your leadership journey... but if you don't, we want to help you find what you're looking for! Check out the Meet the Board page to see our photos and biographies, then send us an email asking for more tips on getting to your leadership destination. The students of the CASL State Board are expert leaders—we go through rigorous, boot-camp style training each summer in order to be the best resource possible for student leaders all over California.
