5 Reasons for Getting involved—And How to Go About It
\1. Clubs allow you to become connected to YOUR school: DHSHS is full of resources, but the responsibility is on YOU to seek them out. Being involved helps YOU to do that.
2. It helps YOU build a community: Getting involved helps you discover new friends with similar interests.
3. It allows YOU to discover your passions and strengths: These will follow you all through life. It allows you to discover what you don't like, too.
4. It's a résumé builder: Freshman year is not too soon to begin thinking about positioning yourself for future employment.
5. Sometimes, busier kids do better in all areas: This will vary a lot by the student, of course, but more free time does not always equal better grades. Being involved will require some organization and time management on the part of the student—and that's a good thing.
