Now that most internships are cancelled for the summer, what should I do to strengthen my college application?

I am a high school junior who is going to apply to Economics and I was hoping that my internship for this summer would add to my college applications. I couldn't find any internships in the years before because my birthday was usually after the cutoff date. My internship is 90% going to get cancelled. If it does, what are some things I can do to strengthen my college app?

Hey, I think that it is possible for you to volunteer for some programs and internships online. At my personal internship, we video conference to make up for not being physically there. In some places like the Queens Public Library in NYC, they are accepting volunteers and doing online sessions.
