Make the biggest impact with National Student Council.
Whether you have a student council, student government association, student senate, or other leadership committee, these young leaders seek to promote a positive school culture throughout the student body.
More than organizing school dances and pep rallies, your students are creating an inclusive climate of learning—and National Student Council (NatStuCo) membership can help by giving your activity adviser instant access to resources that will allow your student council to make an impactful difference in your school.

In the short time that I've had access to the NatStuCo Adviser Resource Center, I've been highly impressed and can't wait to use all the resources to better our student council.
It was a great first year! I’m happy to be part of such an amazing community.
I have worked really hard to have structured meetings. Advise magazine and the NatStuCo E-Bulletin have been very helpful.
