Online political advocacy + mental health awareness
Answered

Hello! I plan on creating a political advocacy group for youth on discord where students can debate, share opinions & communicate to opposing sides in a respectful manner: if I obtain a large amount of participants, can it be considered an extracurricular activity?

I also intend on creating a mental health awareness server as it’s something I’m passionate about & the topic (mental health) corresponds to a lot of my extracurricular activities. If it is successful, can it be considered an extracurricular activity? Thanks for reading!:)

Both of these activities can be considered extracurriculars! Even if only a handful of participants join, they will still be unique and impressive ECs that demonstrate creativity, an entrepreneurial spirit, real-world impact, leadership and a spike. Hope this helps!
