Your high school likely offers more clubs and organizations to join than you might think. You’d be surprised by the range of clubs for students—there’s something for practically every hobby! Join student vlogger Isabella as she shares the clubs she joined at school and explore your interests with her. You might get an idea for a new club you want to join from this video. You may even get some inspiration for clubs to join when you’re off to college.
Setting club priorities
When you’re thinking about what you want to participate in for activities, it’s smart to set some priorities for yourself to meet certain goals. Isabella’s priorities when choosing how to spend her time and which activities to join include:
- Having enough activities to keep her consistently busy,
- Participating in activities that truly interest her,
- And taking on clubs that boost her college résumé.
These are all good considerations for your own priorities as well but don't worry if your focus and goals lie elsewhere. And if you're pursuing college activities, they'll still look good on a job application one day.
