Expanding my Extracurriculars

I am having a hard time finding things to do to expand my extracurriculars. I also need volunteer hours, which is also something hard to find during covid. I live in a town with about 20-30 thousand people and my school hasn't been helpful with clubs, volunteering, or even creating your own club/volunteer program. I really need help, I don't want to not get accepted into a school because I don't have many extracurriculars. I love helping others and making a positive difference, but my community makes it so hard to do so. I live in southern PA, boarding Maryland... so if you know anything relatively close there please let me know!

You could start by starting a service club of your own in your school/area, if nobody else has already done so. Colleges will love that. Also, you can look online for ECs on places like Kepler. Look for coding, a debate team, art classes, or anything else you are interested in that you could do remotely. Good luck, hope this helps!
