Student Leadership and Engagement

Youth Leadership Launch

The Santa Cruz County Office of Education (Santa Cruz COE) is committed to ensuring that our students have the skills to become our next leaders. We want our students to have a vision for themselves and our community. Our student leadership initiatives provide the means for students to develop essential leadership skills such as strategic and critical thinking, clear communication, and how to set measurable goals. The Santa Cruz County Student Leadership and Engagement Programs demonstrate to students the value in being of service to others, commitment to growth, honesty, and being responsible and thoughtful decision makers.
