Connecting
with others around you outside of class allows you to effectively build your “people
skills.” Joining a club especially not only develops this skill but it broadens
what you may already have. You will learn how to speak to individuals and
larger audiences. According to Understood.org “An extracurricular activity is a good way for people to be social in a
more relaxed environment. And they get to meet people with the same interests.

Being with other people who enjoy the same things can help your child feel like
he belongs.” You will also acquire
a stronger emotional intelligence as you build new relationships.
