OASERVIC Emerging Leaders Program



The OASERVIC Emerging Leaders Program was designed to provide graduate counseling students and new professionals early in their careers with cultivating experiences that enhance leadership skills, competency development, and diverse opportunities to actively participate in OASERVIC Executive Board meetings, serve on a committee, task force, and/or engage in projects of interest, receive mentorship, build professional networks, and gain exposure to the responsibilities associated with fulfilling elected counseling leadership positions in Ohio.

Two graduate counseling students (master’s or doctoral) and one new professional early in their career (new professionals must have graduated within the previous year to qualify for the program) will be selected as Emerging Leaders to provide a minimum of 50 hours of service to the OASERVIC during the 2019-2020 term (October, 2019 to October, 2020). Recipients must be an OASERVIC member at the time of application submission, and your status (i.e., master, doctoral, or new professional) should be based on your student/graduation status as of January 1, 2020. Emerging Leaders will also receive a funding to subsidize conference registration costs for either the 2019 AOCC Conference or ASERVIC Conference, and be recognized at OASERVIC’s awards ceremony at an OASERVIC awards ceremony either at the All Ohio Counselors’ Conference or OASERVIC’s annual workshop, and also be featured on OASERVIC’s website.

Applicants are sought who have exhibited exceptional leadership potential, and that hold a willingness to serve OASERVIC in a variety of roles for the betterment of the counseling profession and populations we serve.
