Basic Leadership Workshop

2024 Dates

June Basic: June 9-14

July Basic: July 14-19

(A student may only attend Basic ONE time.)

This is a WORKshop—not just another convention or camp. 


Mission Statement: To develop student leaders by offering training and hands-on experiences so the students can enhance their local student council and school culture while preparing themselves for future leadership roles in their schools, careers, and communities.


Delegates are expected to have the maturity and motivation to participate actively in planned activities and improve their leadership abilities.  The delegates will spend 10-12 hours daily learning and practicing leadership skills in student council groups.  These groups simulate the work of delegates’ local councils or groups, where advisors and council members work closely together to achieve goals. 

Major skill development sessions will be offered in the following areas:

1. Group Processes - large and small
2. Communications
3. Project Planning
4. Problem Solving
5. Leadership Styles
6. Interpersonal Relations
7. Team Building
8. Group Dynamics
9. Goal Setting
10. Fund Raising/School Activities
