Except a student council in high school (I don't know how it works for you) actually do something for the ones who elected it. We did put together many cool events during my council days like school parties, 18th birthdays found, school TV, sport games, talent shows, panels with interesting people, meetings with Israeli students and the US embassy diplomatists. And our own prom. Good days.
