The Importance of Extracurricular Activities

Students involved in extracurricular activities are more likely to:

  • Become leaders;

  • Complete tasks;

  • Voice opinions;

  • Meet people they might otherwise not encounter;

  • Gain experience in a variety of areas that will enhance their future;

 

Extracurricular activities can empower students to make their own decisions and help them gain experience and skills to lead them on the path to their future.

  • Learn cooperation, teamwork and time management;

  • Explore social, political, and career interests;

  • Learn responsibility, problem solving and communication;

  • Discover hidden talents; and

  • Learn about things outside their own environment.
