What is the role of a Student Council Advisor?
Successful organizations are made possible by willing, patient, and creative advisors/teachers. A progressive and innovative activity or group does not just happen, but is determined by the personal qualities of that Advisor. The very “key” to that group’s success is the adult serving in the Advisor’s capacity. The way that the Advisor plays his or her role can be most significant to an organization and to the school/community that organization serves. How is the role of the Student Council Advisor unique? While there may be a difference on specific duties in a given school, there is a general agreement on the Student Council Advisor’s role as Planner, Consultant, Counselor, Evaluator, Teacher, Agent, Fundraiser, and Salesperson.

Let X = Student Activities
According to the Alliance for Student Activities whatever your desired educational, social or emotional outcome, student activities are the common denominator that drives student performance. The Alliance for Student Activities believes that the participation in student activities increases students' standardized test scores, GPAs, graduation rates, college acceptance rates and college success rates. It practically eliminates the likelihood that a student will choose to drop out of high school. Additionally, student activities develop core social and emotional skills while reducing high-risk behavioral problems and long term public assistance needs.
