What are some extracurriculars related to finance and economics?
Answered

My school currently doesn't have any clubs related to business or economics. I know there are multiple ways to demonstrate your interest in the medical field like volunteering at a hospital but I'm not really sure how to demonstrate my interest in business and economics.

I would look for programs in the community that aren't tied to your school. Maybe some local businesses sponsor some sort of program, especially if you live in or near a larger city. Junior Achievement is a national organization that provides programs for high school students, and some states have competitions relating to academic subjects including business and economics for students. If all else fails, you could use skillshare or another similar online learning platform for some low stakes learning opportunities. Keep searching for ways to further your passion!

You can start a finance or business club at your school! That shows that you are interested in business and want to help other people understand business. If your high school offers it, take AP Microeconomics and/or AP Macroeconomics or any economics electives your high school offers, if it does offer any.

Entrepreneurship! Try to start your company, record numerical stats that you can report to colleges. This can show passion, determination, and your motivation. It will also be a very good learning experience

Hello, there is a lot of internships and pre-colleges program relating to business. Try to find some virtual volunteering through a site called VolunteerMatch! You can filter on the site what you are looking for. I also suggest doing a google search on internships available to do that deals with business and economics. Be aware that many applications for internships is past due. Also, search schools in your state that offer pre-college programs relating to business and economics. I hope this helps!
