It’s time to take the wheel and move forward on your leadership journey with:
Middle Level Leadership Development Days

This is your chance to give your students an exceptional leadership opportunity much closer to home.

Events are open to student councils, NJHS, and other school approved organizations. Students must be accompanied by an adult approved by the school and must be registered by the student council, NJHS advisor or other school approved sponsor or advisor. Advisors may invite any student leader or emerging leader grades 5 - 8.

At the Middle Level Regional Leadership Development Days,  Middle Level Student Council and NJHS leaders and advisors hear speakers, gain training from experts, and share ideas with peers. Build your ML program by registering your students and advisors. For Student Council, NJHS, and other ML Leadership Group members and advisors (Grades 5-8) Invite others from your campus or nearby schools today.

These events are planned just for your middle level leaders.
Each event, regardless of the location will include the following:

Breakouts for Students

  • Looking for WHY:
    Building spirit at your school must include intentional planning for spirit days: those days that bring students and staff today. Let’s talk about the WHY.
  • Keeping Us Healthy and Safe:
    What can student leaders do to help keep our campus physically and mentally safe and healthy?
  • Let’s Celebrate What’s Good:
    It’s all too easy to get dragged down with complaints and problems. Let’s build up pride, patriotism, and recognition of the good in our school, community, country, and world.
  • Take Care of this World. It’s the Only One We Have:
    What can students do to positively impact energy and environment?
  • Roadmap to Wellness:
    Intentional connection matters. Let’s talk about connecting students and staff and connecting both to resource. We can do this.
  • General Sessions will include a video speech from Kwame Ambaah, a former TASC state officer as well as chants, songs, and traditions of TASC.
  • Advisor Training will include the Golden Circle by Simon Sinek, State Reports for StuCo Advisors, Community Service ideas for all, and organization techniques to support any advisor. Advisors will be given time for job alike discussions and for sharing ideas.
  • Hometown Chapter/Council Time: Structured evaluation of what was learned and plans to implement what was learned
  • Lunch will be served onsite. Students and advisors are asked to bring their own water bottles for filling during the day.

On behalf of TASC, I apologize for the confusion regarding these events. We saw that registration was very low for the early Jan. events and made a decision to cancel those. The biggest registration we had was 15 people for one of the workshops. Unfortunately, some sites could not reschedule. Our TASC Board has created an excellent plan for the scheduled workshops, and we hope many schools can take advantage of them.
