Carlsbad Educational Foundation’s Student Leadership Council is a program for high school students within the Carlsbad Unified School District.  This empowering program provides members the opportunity to develop life-long leadership skills while supporting CEF’s mission of developing impactful programs to provide increased educational opportunities. Students focus on understanding themselves as leaders and setting personal and group goals to develop their leadership skills through monthly meetings, volunteer opportunities, and student ambassador roles.

At the end of every year, students present a capstone project called, Learning to Lead, which brings together a year of learning and experiences.
