I have seen firsthand what CASC has done in developing student leaders within the state of California. The organization has provided me with far more personal growth and leadership training than I ever got in school.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Motivational Speaker Scott Greenberg has joined a campaign to save the California Association of Student Council (CASC) from state budget cuts. In their final deliberations for the California state budget, legislators removed line item 6100-117-0001 for $45,000 earmarked for CASC Summer Conferences. Greenberg, and alumnus of CASC’s summer leadership development program, is partnering with the organization and other alumni to reverse this decision.
CASC, a student-led non-profit organization founded in 1947, has been putting on leadership programs now within the state for decades. Recently, the California state legislature cut a $45,000 budget earmarked for the organization’s annual summer leadership camps, scheduled to be held at U.C. Berkeley and U.C. Santa Barbara in August 2012. Greenberg is scheduled as a keynote speaker and will be waiving his regular speaking fee. He is also working with fellow alumni to promote a petition to reinstate funding.
Greenberg has been working with CASC leadership conferences for the past 20 years. Prior to speaking at these functions, he worked with the CASC in several capacities serving as a counselor, trainer, camp director and also served on the CASC board. The $45,000 CASC leadership camp budget is only one of those affected by the billions already cut from California state schools and universities. Greenberg honored his commitment to speak at the CASC’s summer leadership camp without compensation because of the impact the organization has had on him personally.
"I have seen firsthand what CASC has done in developing student leaders within the state of California. The organization has provided me with far more personal growth and leadership training than I ever got in school,” says motivational speaker Scott Greenberg. “In my opinion, CASC has been making a major impact for decades and needs to survive. This $45,000 line item won't make a dent in the state's budget, but will definitely make all the difference for this important organization."
Today, motivational speaker Scott Greenberg travels around the world to businesses, government agencies, schools, and youth presenting motivational keynotes, workshops and seminars to audiences on how to develop personal resilience, confidence, and solid interpersonal skills to achieve peak performance.
