Another way to “push yourself” during high school is to get involved in school and community activities.

Here’s why: GetInvolved

  • You’ll explore career interests. Think you might want to work in the medical profession? Volunteer at a hospital or nursing home. Interested in politics? Run for student council. You get the idea …
  • You’ll qualify for more scholarships. Many are based on community service and extracurricular activities such as school clubs, band, sports, and drama. Watch the Do It. Track It. Earn It. video to see why getting involved is important.
  • You’ll stay out of trouble because you’ll be too busy.
  • You’ll work with adults who can help shape your life.
