NASC Update: Big Enhancements Are on the Way

Get ready for exciting new NASC tools, resources, and a truly collaborative opportunity!

At NASC, we are dedicated to providing you and your students with the support you need to make your councils a success. We know that part of our service involves helping you effectively manage your council.

In order to serve you better, we conducted an online survey of NASC advisers to determine what kinds of tools and resources you need most. You spoke, and we listened!

During the 2017–18 school year, NASC will roll out a host of enhanced resources, including: 

Adviser Resources

Adviser Online Community: In this interactive online community, you can connect with fellow NASC advisers to exchange ideas for projects, share lessons learned, and get new ideas for teaching student leadership—all from the comfort of your computer.

Enhanced Adviser Resource Center: We will be providing new, robust tools and resources on the NASC website useful for both veteran and new advisers alike. The Center will be presented in a streamlined, easy-to-use fashion.

New Adviser Starter Kit: This comprehensive kit will give new advisers key resources and information to be successful in their new adviser role and in managing their council. The kit will include downloadable user guides to help new advisers hit the ground running.
