Hi Hugo,

Volunteering is considered an extra curricular activity. I would recommend volunteering for a variety of reasons. First, you make the choice on what volunteer activities you want to do. There is no right activity but one that is suited to your interests or skills. You would just need to know how they would provide you the documentation that you need to provide as a part of your college application. Second, volunteering can be a great way to test your skills or learn new ones. For example, I started a photography hobby several years ago. I offered my newly gained skills for free in an effort to practice and improve in that skill, which I have. For you, you would want to think about what skill you may want to improve as it applies to going to college. For example, maybe you want to be a teacher. Volunteer to teach people to read or to dance or whatever field you want to teach in. Third, volunteering exposes you to a large amount of different people that you can network with. You may find a mentor while volunteering. I would recommend volunteering with several organizations and in a variety of rolls. It will give you exposure to work that you have never done before and may teach you something that you love but hadn't known existed.

Anything other than your studies that can be counted as your creativity, activity or service. It's always a better idea to document suck activities so that at the time of your college application you can share these to showcase your comprehensive profile as an individual and as a student for better chances of admission and scholarships.
