Beach Team is an introduction to ASI and Student Government at CSULB and we are dedicated to providing leadership opportunities to all incoming freshmen/transfer students. Our goal is to instill the values and practices of student government while promoting outreach, involvement in campus events, teamwork and giving students the tools needed for advancement in ASI.
Some exciting Beach Team activities include
49er For A Day: An all-day high school outreach event that Beach Team organizes and coordinates with the various high schools in the area. The event allows for high school students interested in attending college and being involved with student leadership, the opportunity to develop their leadership skills through various workshops, gain valuable information on how to apply to the CSU System and Cal State Long Beach, and interaction with other high school students in Long Beach on the beautiful Cal State Long Beach Campus. This event is hosted once a year and is an opportunity for Beach Team to showcase its event planning, facilitation and organization skills.
Fall/Spring Government Mixer: Beach Team hosts every semester a student government mixer to allow for various AS government branches to socialize and interact with Beach Team. The mixer allows various branches to provide valuable insight into the position they hold in ASI and encourage Beach Team members into those different positions.
Government Mentor Program: The Government Mentor Program sets up each Beach Team member with a student government leader in the various branches. Beach Teamers have the opportunity to shadow and learn from a Senator, President's Commissioner or Cabinet Member, an Associate Justice or USU Board Trustee. This program is an opportunity for each Beach Teamer to get a more hands-on experience in his or her field of interest. The program rotates so each Beach Teamer has the opportunity to shadow two or three different people from different branches.
