Raising Student Voice and Participation

Raising Student Voice & Participation, or RSVP, is a program of the National Association of Student Councils, or NASC, based in Virginia and working nationally.

RSVP aims to identify student council as the primary vehicle for student voice and meaningful involvement. It is through student council-led initiatives that students are able to identify needs and address concerns in effective and productive ways, founded in educational values and supported by the principal and faculty.

Student leaders, advisers, principals, or other participating school members of RSVP are expected to integrate RSVP into their student council agendas—training other student leaders to plan and facilitate summits and involving others in the development and implementation of activities based on summit results.
