We also emptied trash, swept floors and helped with any tasks the teachers would require.
This activity taught me the importance of helping others in addition to helping myself by making my environment a much neater place to work in.
Some of these consisted of designing posters and signs that was placed in designated areas throughout the school.
We would also be able to display our artwork and special projects in an area that was chosen to showcase our work.
There's a spectrum here, though - improving your hair quality isn't really an extracurricular.
But starting a Youtube channel around beauty tips or creating a club for teen health enthusiasts definitely does. Have you always wanted to try out something related to art, but weren’t sure if it would be worth your time, or if it would be viewed favorably by a college admissions team?Research to see if these activities are available at your high school or in your community.If there is something you are very passionate about that’s not already offered, consider starting up a group of your own. If you are a freshman, I would recommend trying out a bunch of different activities--up to ten if there are that many you have an interest in.In elementary school I was involved in the Art Club.Students would arrive at school early on Tuesday mornings and members would have the opportunity to be involved in special art projects.But you might not know what good extracurricular activities look like or what you should be spending your time on.An extracurricular activity can be almost anything that isn’t required for high school credit or paid employment.I also enjoy my involvement in our youth group at the church that I attend.In addition to trips and activities that are geared more towards recreation, we also are involved in volunteering our time to needy causes such as Operation Angel Tree and assisting with items being sent to hurricane victims.What doesn't necessarily count as an extracurricular? You can't just get a belly button piercing and expect colleges to be wowed.It should be an activity that demonstrates a talent or contributes value to other people.
