There are also plenty of virtual volunteering opportunities. It depends on your interest--do you want to be a virtual tutor? Go to You can go to to assist with research projects, become a Smithsonian transcriber, and more. Create a blog or social media account displaying your passions, contact your counselor to take online classes you can get credit for, donate and make masks to a local hospital, etc. If you are sixteen you can start a Linkedin account and start making connections with people and asking questions to people in a career you are considering.

Try exploring what you want to do and colleges so you can not spend a whole lot of time later. You could start a blog and look into getting job post COVID or if you want to go into medical fields look at voluntering at hospitals or nursing homes. ALSO PICK COURSES THAT HEP YOU IN YOUR MAJOR. Especially if they are AP. However all of these suggestions arent exactly needed for most schools just stick with your activity and climb the ranks. Like I'm in a youthgroup and I like being in it so I ran for the student board so look at what you are already doing and find a way to expand on it.
