OASC has partnered with the iBELIEVE Foundation to offer eight different weeks of summer workshop programming! Summer workshop is a 5 day, 4 night summer camp opportunity for student leaders in the middle level program (entering grades 7-9) and the senior high program (entering grades 10-12). These summer programs encourage the development of leadership skills, improves understanding of setting and achieving worthy goals, and inspires young leaders to accept challenges and responsibilities, so they may return to their communities with knowledge, convictions and understanding which will empower them to better all they encounter. Our summer programming also facilitates life long connections between student leaders from all over the state of Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and most recently, Kentucky.

Extensive preparations are being made to insure that we have the best programs possible ready for you upon your arrival. But, no program, no staff member, and no facility will be what makes this a great experience for you. Ultimately, YOU are the key to guaranteeing that you will get everything from the workshop that is intended!

We hope you will come to workshop with a desire and the spirit to learn, to try new things, and to share your talents, ideas, and feelings with others. If you do that, we promise you will leave with more information than you ever thought you could remember, with more new friends than you thought you could make, and with a feeling that you can make a positive difference in your school, community, and in the lives of the people you know!

In late April, the Ohio Association of Student Councils comes together for their Annual State Conference. 

This is a 3 day event beginning on Thursday evening for both middle school and high school students to engage in special presentations, keynote speakers, informative small group discussions, swap shops, a banquet a dance and many opportunities to make new friends and share ideas. 

In addition, students participate in the process of electing new board members. Senior High must elect 4 new candidates to serve on the executive board, while middle school students vote for 2 candidates to serve on the executive board. 

Students stay in host homes of Student Council members from the host school. These host homes graciously open their doors and are routinely some of the highest rated scores on our conference evaluation. 

In order to attend State Conference, schools must be OASC members and have paid membership for the current year.
