EC and Volunteer help
Answered

I would like to increase the amount of EC's I have but, I spent the entirety of my freshman year in a job and didn't have time to actually do anything. I kept my grades up and currently have a 4.2 GPA and took an honors class. I want to plan out the EC's I will take next year but I have no idea where to start. I also want to volunteer a lot more but I'll be taking on another job next yr(sophomore year) which'll make it harder to volunteer. Can anyone recommend online volunteering sites of something?

Side note: Are there any things I could do to improve my college portfolio over the summer? (I also have a job this summer)

I would recommend ENGIN! It's completely online and we teach Ukrainian students English. I've been doing it for almost 5 years now and absolutely love it. The volunteers are so helpful and they are on top of everything. You basically become best friends with the student your tutor and build lasting relationships with everyone involved. It's super fun and a very unique opportunity that I think you can benefit from :)

You're going to do great, good luck!!

I;m not sure about online volunteering but joining clubs in school or doing your own projects based on your interests. You could try to do a internship during the summer
