The summer is a wonderful time to kick back, relax, visit friends and family, hit the beach, go on a mission trip and discover more about yourself.
It is also a great time to do a deep dive into your interests. Attached here is the TEEN LIFE Magazine guide to summer programs.
You do not need to spend tons of money or even leave your backyard to make an impact this summer. But do try to get involved in something bigger than yourself. Look for situations that you can improve, help your community, join something new, take some time to develop an interest that you have. It looks good!
P.S. If you want to be a physician, you need to do research. If you want to be an architect, you may want to design something.
