About Us

A Brief History

The Alliance for Student Activities was founded by a group of educators and trainers who realized the need for a unifying voice and network to promote the benefits and processes of cocurricular activities. Through a grant from the Herff Jones Company they met to explore ways to improve education through the use of student activities. They quickly focused on the need for advisor training and for raising the awareness of the community as to the value of cocurricular activities. The members began to organize themselves to establish advisor training, offer programs and resources to the profession, and to seek opportunities to partner with other organizations to advance the Alliance mission.

The Alliance was established as a corporation with nonprofit 501(c)(3) status in the spring of 2007 by this group of educators and trainers who realized the need for a unifying voice and network to promote the benefits and processes of cocurricular student activities. Roles within the organization include:

  • The members at-large
  • Advisory committee members
  • The board of directors
  • The administrative staff

Goals

The Alliance for Student Activities is dedicated to:

  • Raising the awareness of the immense value of school-sponsored, student-led, adult-advised cocurricular activities (those activities in and around the school community that provide students with the opportunity to learn, develop, and practice the life skills for social and civic involvement)
  • Supporting academic achievement and college & career readiness by helping establish a safe, positive school climate
  • Training educators, parents, and all students in the processes, philosophies, and procedures that provide the foundation for successfully engaging the larger student population
  • Partnering with like-minded organizations to promote the value of these interactive activities.
