College Admissions: Does Community Service and Volunteering Help?

I always encourage students to get involved in community service projects or participate in volunteering because it helps with college admissions. More importantly, it makes you feel good about yourself and how your efforts are making a difference in the lives of others. Summer is a good time to look for volunteer opportunities where you can get involved in something about which you care.  See if you can’t fit in a few hours every week for an important cause.  Colleges want to accept students who will contribute on the campus and community as well.  Check out this article for some great suggestions.
