How to Improve My Extracurriculars?Answered
I'm a junior and I have very less extracurricular, I am a member of Robotics Club, and a leader of a community in my school. I'm passionate about creating websites and drawing. How can I improve my extracurriculars? Any ideas?

Although there may not be enough time left in the school year before apps, perhaps try starting a new club, especially a unique one with community impact. Making a club with an organization is great, but a unique club idea can help as a spike. One suggestion is to make a website builder club where you help small businesses create better websites. Of course, you are totally free to do anything ;)
You need to do something for your community. Helping a grandma cross the street is no longer considered an extracurricular activity. Creating a robot that helps grandma cross the street is.
Does your school offer any clubs that does volunteer work. You’ll be able to go to different areas and experience different things by helping out!
There’s lots of things you can do with this. You can volunteer to do adds for small business if they have an Instagram. This can look very good because since the pandemic many small businesses have suffered. Also if the business doesn’t have a website you can offer to do one. I know that on fiverr you can make money by building websites. I know that last one might not count for EC but hope that this helped
You can join drawing club if your school have one and build a website for them showcasing group’s talent.
To keep this community safe and supportive:
