How ASGA Can Help You
High Schools

If you're trying to form and improve a high school Student Government, ASGA can give you the tools to be successful.

ASGA can help a High School SG by:

1. Creating Infrastructure. We'll provide you with examples of key documents such as constitutions, bylaws, officer job descriptions, and election codes that will help you forge the backbone of your organization.

2. Helping You Set an Agenda. ASGA will examine your resources and makeup in order to develop a plan of action that's realistic and attainable for the coming year.

3. Starting "Signature" Programs. You can search the SG Database for examples of best practices, which you can then implement or emulate. We'll also point you to time-tested programs and projects which you can adopt that will get the attention of your fellow students and teachers.

4. Improving Meetings. We also offer meeting-management tools, such as parliamentary-procedure teaching materials and tips for making your meetings more effective.

5. Developing an SG Brand. We can help you clarify your role. Your organization has a much better chance of survival if you have a clear purpose!
  6. Training Your Members. At conferences and through consulting, ASGA can train your new officers and members so that they know their roles and can serve efficiently and competently.

7. Connecting You With Peers. The SG Database, training events, and online forums provide opportunities to exchange ideas and network with SG members from all types and sizes of institutions across the country.

8. Supporting Your Advisors. High school SGs often depend on guidance from their advisors, who are usually teachers. But the majority of teachers have never worked with SG before. ASGA provides resources and peer networks that help advisors grow and improve.

9. Improving SG Finances. Knowing how to raise money and to stretch limited funds can accelerate your development as an organization.

10. Providing Expert Analysis. ASGA's panel of SG experts and consultants can analyze your unique situations, providing tailored support and recommendations regarding any SG-related question or problem you're having. We can also conduct research on your behalf.

American Student Government Association  

The American Student Government Association will provide all Student Government leaders and advisors nationwide with networking, research, and information resources and will teach them how to become more effective, ethical, and influential leaders on their campuses. ASGA also will promote the advancement of SGs, conduct research as the nation’s only “SG Think Tank,” and advocate the importance of having a vibrant, autonomous Student Government organization at every institution in America.
