Why Extracurricular Activities (2:22 sec)

What’s the best way to build skills for college and a career and have fun at the same time? Find out from the role models in this video how participating in extracurriculars like sports and music can do all that.

Why are colleges and employers so impressed with students who participate in extracurricular activities? Participating in activities outside of the regular school day, such as sports, debate club, and volunteer work, can help you develop important teamwork skills. These activities can also help you build confidence and learn how to stick with something, even when it means working through challenges. The role models in this video can tell you even more about the value of extracurricular activities, especially when you're thinking about college and a career.
