Student, East Boston High School, Class of 2015,
The 3 Popular extracuricular activitites at the high School are, NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of colored People), Debate Team, and Football. the one that I recommend is NAACP. NAACP has been a very amazing experience in my senior year of high School. It allows student to be able to open their eyes to the bigger Objects in the world in which their voice can make a change wheather it was in the school community or country. One of the projects that we were very successful with was creating a trauma class in our school. Trauma is something we believe that many people deal with wheather they realize it or not. Most of the time its trauma that causes students to not be so focused or engaged in school activities which cause them to result in a failure. The class was created to help students realize that the their situation, wheather its was minor or major can allow them to create a change so it wont be able to happen to other people. Situations such as gun Violence, bullying, and even fear of being in certain cities is what most of the students at any high school can be traumatized about but they will never speak up about it. So when NAACP was started at the high school many students have began to speak up and make a change. As a result of the work we've done, we were invited to Las vegas, New York, Orlando, and Philadelphia within the year of 2014-2015 to attend national meetings with the other NAACP groups and members from many other states to speak about more situations that can be fixed, and the situations that were fixed. As of now we are working on promoting this program to many high schools and colleges world wide to spread everyones voice. Afterall every voice matters.
