2024 Theme: Act NOW! 

The Act Now TASC Summer Leadership Workshop empowers student leaders with dynamic workshops, inspiring consultants, and collaborative sessions. Designed to ignite action, the workshop focuses on leadership skills, social impact, and fostering positive change within the student community. Join us for a transformative experience to enhance your leadership potential and make a lasting impact on your campus and beyond.

“Acting now” is more than simply making a quick decision. It is about recognizing the value of time and seizing the moment when it presents itself. It is acknowledging the urgency of the situation while still taking the time to gather information, weigh the options and make an informed decision. To Act Now means embracing the uncertainty, trusting your instincts, and taking that leap of faith. To truly live, we must learn to act now, for the present is all we truly possess. The call to action is not limited to a few. The call to Act Now is for all.

 

TASC provides high-quality and significant value summer leadership workshops to student councils in Texas. The success of the workshop program depends on the adults who give their time and talents each summer. The roles of the director and the consultant, although very different, are vital to accomplishing the goals and objectives of this TASC program.

Student council advisors with the skills, interest, and time to serve in this capacity are encouraged to participate in the training program. TASC is interested in developing adult leaders who are willing to commit to student leadership instruction through TASC.

  • The TASC workshop experience establishes A POWERFUL STUDENT VOICE
    Student leaders want to contribute, be involved, and improve. Some are natural leaders, but for most students, leadership is acquired through instruction and experiences. A desire to serve is the common denominator. Students come together to understand the passion that calls them and to cultivate their leadership voice.
  • The TASC workshop experience creates A CIRCLE OF ADVISORS DEDICATED TO STUDENT LEADERS
    Join teachers fulfilled by helping students achieve their potential and Student Councils find a voice. Experience the TASC advisor network to receive training and guidance. Exceed the basic standard of student council operation in your school.
  • The TASC workshop experience connects PROVIDERS OF LEADERSHIP ESSENTIALS
    Discover the road map for student council success through in-depth training and experiential learning activities. Student council experts deliver relevant world-class curricula and resources. Please note that some workshops are limited in the number of people who can attend. Registration is online. There is a $100 fee for changes by a set deadline (one month before the workshop), and there are no refunds after the registration deadline (one month before the workshop). You may register for the number you are sure of and add students later for no additional fee if there is room.
  • Registration for an onsite summer leadership workshop includes room (dorm), meals, supplies, and training. No refunds or credits will be given for cancellations after the deadline (one month before the first day of the workshop.) Refunds will not be provided for workshop no-shows, regardless of the situation. There is one day during which attendees have the afternoon and early evening free. Attendees must pay for their meals and costs for whatever they choose to do during that free time.
  • Adding Additional Delegates to an existing registration: Register them on a NEW registration form. An invoice is created separately. (Our system does not combine separate entries into one invoice. Every registration you submit creates its own invoice.)
  • We ask that delegates register a month before the workshop to give directors time to create room assignments, etc. 
  • Registration will close at least two weeks before the workshops or when full.  If you need to add students or register late, contact the workshop director.  If there is space, the director can work with TASC to reopen your registration briefly.
