The Student Council provides a valuable leadership partnership between students and their school. It creates the opportunity for students to become effective leaders. It encourages a positive school climate. Empowered students are vehicles for positive change in their school and community. Student leaders have the responsibility to be positive role models. Student councils play a vital role in preserving knowledge of and practice in the democratic process. Leadership training programs are essential to allow developing leaders to achieve their full potential.
