Give your adviser the power of National Student Council.

Being an activity adviser can be one of the most rewarding jobs in a school—especially with access to the tools and resources from National Student Council (NatStuCo). But perhaps the most important aspect of NatStuCo membership is the human-to-human connection offered through a vast peer network of advisers from across the country who can discuss experiences, provide advice, and share in their commitment to student leadership in our schools and communities.
