I would suggest become a tutor, but if you want an extracurricular that REALLY stands out then I would suggest that you ask local middle schools if they would allow you to create an after school club or program that you could run by yourself or under adult supervision. (I only know that you can do this because my high school allows students to run after school clubs/programs at middle schools that do not offer a lot of after school clubs/programs.)

Volunteer at an after school program/tutoring and having some sort of leadership in something which you have a passion for. Also debate helps with everything like listening to others articulating among other skills.
