Similar to extracurricular activities, colleges like to see students who go the extra mile and dedicate their time to a worthy cause. It shows you care about something more than yourself and you’re willing to set aside time, resources, and energy for others.
For volunteer opportunities, you can start with your school and counselor’s office. They may have suggestions for the area. Some places to look around in your city include animal shelters, local government, libraries, elementary schools, food panties, archaeology groups, and health programs. You might also want to look for a volunteer opportunity that matches your future major.
Think about what interests you, but remember to keep up participation! Don’t slack after a few weeks. The connections you make while volunteering can prove valuable in later years.
