What challenging programs/extracurriculars/volunteering should I do during this pandemic? My internship got cancelled.
I'm interested in science, history, and English, and I love to volunteer. I had an internship at AMNH but it got cancelled due to the pandemic. I live in NY, and if anyone has any ideas or opportunities I would deeply appreciate it! (I'm entering my senior btw)
Sorry to hear about the internship! Unfortunately, many students will be in the same boat. Is there anything you can do remotely for AMNH? Maybe a social media campaign, writing blog posts, or creating videos? Is there another organization you could reach out to that might need a remote intern?
Otherwise, you might consider remote volunteer tutoring, either as an individual, or through a community program. You might even put together a team of remote tutors to serve high-needs populations. You could also start a blog, podcast, or YouTube channel related to your interests.
Here are some other ideas of remote extracurriculars: https://blog.collegevine.com/extracurriculars-you-can-do-at-home/
Hope this helps, and best of luck!
my internship at a college got cancelled as well! Thankfully I found another one making face shields. I recommend learning how to code a new language, for me I did Python and I think i will trade it for Java soon. There are a lot o free sites out there who will help u be familiar with the website even if it is not a respected professional website that can give you a certificate.
