Make a Difference in Your Community
Extracurricular activities are a great way to get connected to school, take on leadership roles and explore career interests. The more you are involved, the more you will discover where your strengths and interests lie. Great ways to get connected to extracurricular activities include community service, internships, job shadowing, college classes and research opportunities. Schools have many different clubs/organizations and sports that students can join to further their interests.

- Community Connect
- Latino Network Leadership Institute

- UC Davis Young Scholars Program
- Loma Linda University ABC biomedical research program
- UCR Summer Academy
Be sure to keep a record of all your activities, positions, supervisor's contact information and hours. You will need this information for college applications, resumes, scholarships, and job applications.
