There are various leadership opportunities throughout Niles High School. Have you considered...
Becoming a club officer?
Being Captain of your team?
Taking part in Student Council?
Starting a new school club?
Many of our clubs have a strong emphasis on leadership. National Honor Society, Key Club, FFA, and Business Professionals of America (BPA) are a few examples.
Be sure to check the school website, twitter, and sign up for announcements on how to get involved! Being involved in high school is something that always looks good on a resume and on college applications.
Many organizations send us information on leadership opportunities outside of the school. We are happy to pass along the information, but we do not necessarily endorse these outside activities.
