Ideas for clubs

Hey guys! I'm looking to start a new club at school to boost my extracurriculars for college applications. Can anyone suggest some cool or unique club ideas that would be both fun and beneficial for my application?

Hey there! It's great that you're interested in starting a club to show initiative and leadership. Consider launching a club centered around a specific passion or skill that you'd like to develop or share with others.

For example, if you're into tech, you could start a coding or robotics club. If you have a passion for environmental issues, create a club focused on sustainability or climate activism. For enthusiasts of personal development, a public speaking or entrepreneurship club might be ideal. Creative writers can consider putting together a writing workshop or literary magazine. Another popular option is to create a club that explores and celebrates various cultures or languages.

Ultimately, the key is to select a club idea that genuinely interests you and has potential to benefit others. When colleges review your application, they'll likely be more impressed by your genuine dedication to a meaningful club rather than just a flashy title. Good luck!
