Growing Great Leaders

At the CASL State Conference, student leaders are given the opportunity to expand their horizons when it comes to their capabilities in cultivating a positive and inclusive school culture. Here, all students feel they have an equal chance at making their voice heard. From workshops led by professionally-trained presenters to awe-inspiring keynote speakers and everything in between, students will return from the CASL State Conference to their campuses feeling inspired and equipped to shape a more positive campus culture for their peers.

Statewide Networking 

One of the primary functions of the CASL State Conference is to provide outlets for students to engage in networking. During Interstate Sessions, a collaborative environment is produced through intentional networking groups comprised of students from all over California and sometimes, visiting states and nations. A trained facilitator will lead these groups in activities aimed at discussion-oriented sharing of ideas. Through the various structured networking opportunities the CASL State Conference offers, students return to their campuses with innovative ideas and fresh perspectives on how to improve their school’s culture and campus climate.

Every student has faced challenges in their leadership careers, and those who haven’t yet will face them eventually. At the CASL State Conference, your student leaders can learn from students just like them, who have faced difficulties and discovered strategies for success. Elected and appointed members of the CASL State Board, who have been professionally trained in presentation skills, will teach 30-minute workshops on topics ranging from event publicity and personal time management to staying motivated and dedicated in the most trying times. To provide more well-rounded and relatable conference curriculum for all, professionals from outside organizations will also join the CASL State Conference team of presenters to contribute their knowledge and experiences for the students.

Pay it Forward

A hallmark of the CASL State Conference is the yearly Service Learning Experience. A committee on the CASL State Board meets together to design unique opportunities for the delegates at the state conference to give back locally (to the community hosting the conference) and globally. In the past, service projects have included hosting a Senior Ball for elderly community members, reading stories to elementary school students, creating coloring books for hospital-bound children, and raising money for water wells in developing nations.
