Dear Amy: I want to get more involved in school this year, but I am not sure where to start. — Jamie Z., Lansing, Michigan
Dear Jamie: Most schools offer a wide variety of activities for students outside of school. The first step is to find out which options are available to you and then narrow them down according to what you enjoy doing. For instance, if you like drawing, you might join an art club. If you love taking pictures, consider a photography or yearbook club. If you like to sing, join the choir or try out for a school musical.
If the activity you are looking for is not available at school, you might check your local public library, because often there are after-school programs and clubs available to the community. Joining a group of people who have similar interests is also a great way to make new friends.
Don’t be afraid to try something new – you might find an activity that you really enjoy. For more tips, check out this article: “How to Choose the Right After-School Club for Your Child,” parenthood360.com/index.php/how-to-choose-the-right-after-school-club-for-your-child-158.
