What is the Berkeley High ASB Student Leadership Team?
The BHS Associated Student Body (ASB) Student Leadership Team is made up
of three groups:
1. _The executive team_: This group will get really tight with many of
its members going to retreats, leadership camps, and
conferences. This is the core team of the school that makes things
happen – the team that executes!! Homecoming Week, Relief
Campaigns, Month of Service, Holiday Meal, Graduation, big-money
fundraisers, blood drives, concerts, carnivals, fairs, holiday
activities, guest speakers, panel discussions – the sky is the limit
for what this group can bring to the school if they work well together.
2. _The student senate_: The School Board, School Site Council (SSC),
the Berkeley Schools Excellence Project (BSEP), and the Development
Group are the four most important decision-making groups on campus.
Want a say on school design, the bell schedule, teacher evaluations,
major school policies or where millions of dollars are distributed
every year? Then run to be on one of these groups.
3. _The class leadership teams_: Each class (9th-12^th grade) has a
leadership group that plans one major event such as Prom, homecoming
week activities, and fundraisers throughout the year. The members of
these groups also serve as the volunteer core of most major events
like Holiday Meal and can take on other exciting roles and
activities if they are well organized.
Other Leadership opportunities at BHS:
4. _Link Leaders_: (11^th – 12^th grade) Link Crew is a unique
opportunity to create a welcoming & spirited environment on the
Berkeley High campus for all students, but for the 9^th graders in
particular. You will partner with other upperclassmen to mentor and
support a group of freshman for the entire school year. You will
work hard, but be rewarded with the joy of knowing that YOU MADE A
DIFFERENCE in someone’s life. Application is due May 5 and is
available outside of the leadership office.
5. _Small Learning Community Leadership_: Each SLC (AC, AHA, AMPS,
BIHS, CAS, NEWCOMER, or ISP) will have student leadership
representing their specific needs and issues. ASB leadership will
meet monthly with SLC representatives to plan, discuss, and build up
the community at Berkeley High. Inquire with each lead teacher.
6. _Off-Campus Leadership:_There are also leadership opportunities at
the YMCA Teen Center with Youth & Government as well as with Youth
Commission for The City of Berkeley. Search for these positions
online to find out deadlines and more about the process.
