Councils can teach students the skills necessary to be effective leaders and give them experiences in applying the democratic processes found in our local, state, and federal governments. Participation in student council puts students into a situation where they are challenged to apply skills learned in the classroom to plan and carry out council activities and projects. Student council leaders can serve as role models in and out of the classroom as they work to engage all members of the student body in positive activities and projects that promote service, civic engagement, and school spirit.
