Leadership Development

National Student Council is committed to supporting students in their leadership journey and offers a variety of programs to nurture this critical skill.   

  • Distinguished Student Leaders, a program allowing high school students to build a personal leadership portfolio, leading to an earned designation that is highly prized for inclusion with college and scholarship applications
  • Emerging Student Leaders, a recognition program specifically designed for middle level students to help them develop their leadership skills, featuring two levels of recognition based on the student’s progress in meeting the program criteria
  • Raising Student Voice & Participation (RSVP), a student engagement program involving an entire school to participate in dialogue aimed at school and community improvement measures

NOTE: In order for your students to be recognized as Distinguished Student Leaders or Emerging Student Leaders, your school must be a member of NatStuCo. Not a member? Join today!
