Tip of the week
VOLUNTEER / COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS
With the holiday season upon us and winter break approaching, now is a great time to start thinking about volunteer/community service projects! Taking up a service project for a few hours, days or weeks will help you to give back to your community helping those in need, but is also a great opportunity for you to discover something new about yourself or learn a new trade. In addition to building character on-going community service shows a commitment that many colleges value and could give your application the extra edge over competition needed to be admitted to the college of your choice. There are also many scholarships available that are based on community service. So between spending time with your family, hanging out with your friends, and catching up on some much needed rest and relaxation, take a little time to help those less fortunate than you.
Until next week...
