Local Area Conferences


Every year, each of the seven local areas across California host two conferences, one for Middle School leadership groups and another for High School leadership groups. Each of these conferences offer a variety of presentations from best practices sessions from individual schools to keynote speakers addressing the entire group. Check out the CASL event calendar page to learn when these conferences will happen.

Middle School Mini Conferences are somewhat relatively new. Lead by trained High School students, they are designed to teach middle school students concerning various topics about student led school governments. The curriculum centers on skills related to teambuilding, communication, learning through experience and evaluation, including more students in the leadership base, utilizing individual’s strengths, risk taking and getting involved in a positive way!

Every year, CASL hosts three camps throughout the summer. The camps are filled with enticing specialized sessions about specific leadership areas, inspirational speakers, fun activities, all the while enjoying the beautiful UC Santa Barbara and Stanford University campuses. Students will learn leadership skills, how to deal with certain situations, and how to improve their student councils back at home.
