About NYS CLSA

Founded in 1987, the New York State Council on Leadership and Student Activities (NYS CLSA) has helped to foster leadership skills among both high school and middle school students throughout New York State. Created by students and their advisors, CLSA offers students the opportunity to learn, share, and network with their peers in a safe and supervised environment. CLSA is governed by an annuallly elected Board of Directors comprised of both students and advisors. Both play an essential part in organizing and planning all CLSA events, including the annual statewide conference.

NYS CLSA is governed by an elected Student and Adult Board. The organization breaks the state down into 12 different districts (see map at left), each of which is allowed to elect up to two student representatives and two adult representatives. From there, the board elects a Student President, Vice President, and Secretary. The Adult Executive Board is also comprised of an Executive Director, a Director of Student Activities, Assistant Director, a Secretary and a Director of Finance. The members of our elected Student and Adult Boards are shown at the top of this page.

CLSA has many programs that assist students in furthering their skills in civic awareness, team building, and goal setting. These activities include an annual state conference, a statewide charity fundraiser, and local district conferences at both Middle and High School levels along with service learning projects. The annual conference brings together a diverse group of students from around the state to gain leadership skills, share ideas through networking and an opportunity to meet other student leaders from around the state. In addition, service learning projects are developed by students with their advisors at both state and local levels to be implemented throughout New York State communities. Overall, CLSA is a extraordinary organization that provides students and advisors with an array of knowledge and leadership skills that they can use currently and in their future.
