Led by the Staff members of the Executive board, Committees are a great way for students to get involved in supporting the mission of CASC.
Legislative Affairs Committee
The Legislative Affairs Committee is an excellent opportunity for students trying to get involved in our state’s legislative process. Alongside CASC’s Legislative Affairs Coordinator, this committee will work to boost civic engagement in high schools across Connecticut via open sessions accessible to CASC membership schools, spread awareness about youth-related issues and legislation, and encourage and inspire students to become more involved in local and state level government. Students involved in this committee will have the opportunity to work directly with like-minded peers, developing testimony to deliver to lawmakers, discussing current legislative issues for teens, and developing statements on teen-related legislation on behalf of CASC.
The committee will then develop…
2 pieces of legislation to present to the Connecticut General Assembly.
A report of 4 pieces of legislation to present to the General Assembly with our feedback.
Open sessions at the beginning and end of the CT general assembly term. The first will be to establish parliamentary procedures and the structure of Connecticut General Assembly and legislative process, and another at the end summarizing what took place throughout the CT General Assembly session.
Student Workshop Committee
We support people wanting to present by training them and certifying them. Our training consists of two training sessions a year in which we practice how to direct these presentations to an audience through learning to follow a base script as well as improvising our dialogue in order to sound genuine to our listeners, and allow for ideas that stray from the original plan to still happen!
