Examples of leadership positions for NHS?

Hi everyone! I'm applying for the National Honor Society (NHS) at my school, and they require that I list leadership positions I've held or participated in. Can you guys give me some examples of good leadership positions, either in or out of school? It'd be great if I can get some ideas! Thanks!

Hello! It's wonderful that you're applying for the National Honor Society. There are many different types of leadership positions you could list on your application, both within and outside of school. Here are a few examples to get you started and help inspire you:

In school:

1. Student government positions (e.g., class president, treasurer, secretary)

2. Club officer roles (e.g., president, vice president, secretary, or treasurer)

3. Sports team captain or co-captain

4. Leading or organizing school events (e.g., a fundraiser, talent show, or charity drive)

5. Peer tutoring coordinator or mentorship program leader

6. Editor or section leader for the school newspaper, yearbook, or literary magazine

7. Band or orchestra section leader

8. Organizer of a new club or initiative at your school

Outside of school:

1. Youth group leader or coordinator at a religious institution

2. Volunteer coordinator or leader for a community service organization

3. Leadership role in a local, regional, or national club or organization (e.g., Scouts, 4-H, or Junior Achievement)

4. Captain or leader of a community sports team or recreational league

5. Organizing or leading a neighborhood or community project (e.g., park clean-up, community garden, or charity event)

6. Part-time job or internship responsibilities that involve leadership or management (e.g., shift supervisor, project lead, or team coordinator)

7. Mentoring or tutoring younger students outside of school, such as at a local library or community center

Keep in mind that leadership comes in many forms and doesn't always require a formal title. Consider any experience where you've taken charge, inspired others, or made a positive impact. Good luck with your application!
