2015 Student Leadership Days

The Association of Catholic Student Councils, also known as TACSC, a Catholic youth leadership organization is celebrating the completion of their recent Student Leadership Days. TACSC, which is best known for their Summer leadership camp, began offering Student Leadership Days again in 2013 after the Archdiocese of Los Angeles hosted a youth leadership event for over 500 students. Since that time, TACSC has had an enormous demand for these successful events.

This year TACSC partnered with schools in two states to present Student Leaderships Days to over 1800 participants from over 50 schools in 12 locations. Middle Schools students enjoyed lessons in leadership in a day of fun filled learning and games, “Student Leadership Days are a bit like a day of camp.” Said TACSC Executive Director, Heidi Johnson.


Students in 5th, 6th and 7th grade attend workshops on servant leadership, the consequences of your actions, accepting and welcoming diversity in groups, finding your strengths, conflict management and problem solving. These lessons were uniquely prepared and presented by over 120 local high school leaders from 9 of the regions top high schools. The Peer-to-peer learning model actively engages the middle school leaders and models leadership in many ways.

Feedback from participants and host schools has been very strong. The Student Leadership Day Program gives host Catholic high schools the opportunity to show off their campus and students, while TACSC can showcase their program for middle school students who experience a day of fun-filled leadership learning.

What Our Alumni Say

“TACSC has been one of the most influential parts of my life since I was 12-years old. My closest friends are my TACSC Family. Most of my career and successes can be attributed to TACSC… and I find myself returning year after year, no matter how busy I am, to give back to other students and staff the experience TACSC gave me.”
