Extracurricular activities

A photo of ProteinPowder ProteinPowder
So,for the past four years, I haven't really done anything extracurricular, I joined a few clubs in like grade 9 and 10 but they weren't that active, don't remember going to a meeting. I'm worried because of some of the scholarships and since I applied to Vic College, I have to write essays about some of the extracurricular activities I have done, and I didn't do anything.

Its never too late to start doing extracurricular activities. I went into my grade 12 year in the same situation as you, not having a whole lot of involvement in extracurricular activities during my high school years. I got involoved. I started volunteering for my karate club, ran summer equine camps and contributed to the yearbook at school. All the of these helped me, so I just suggest getting involved with things you enjoy doing.

Like smokelky said, it's not too late to start getting involved now.
but keep in mind when you're applying to scholarships that many scholarship donors look for someone who is committed, so you would be better off looking for 1 thing to get involved in that you really enjoy doing rather than getting involved with 289572985 different organizations for a week each.

I'm in the same boat. I'm applying for education and you need so much extracurricular and volunteer.. especially with kids and stuff. Look into community service volunteering and get involved at your school. That's the easiest way to do it.

Guidance offices are usually great at having lists of local volunteer opportunities. :)

Good Luck!

Volunteering looks amazing on a scholarship application -- try to find places y can volunteer some time in. Inner city organizations, food banks, or animal shelters are great places to volunteer and can be really rewarding too!!
