Getting Involved

 

It is very important to get involved at Atrisco Heritage Academy High School and in the Albuquerque Community!

 

Why?

  • Learn new things
    • Maybe you have an idea about what you want to study in college or maybe you have no idea...that is why it is important to volunteer/get involved in certain organizations so that way you can learn more about what you like and what you don't like!
  • Build your resume
    • Resumes are a way to display what you are about! This is where you will showcase your education, work experience, community service, skills and references. Employers and scholarship applications will ask for a resume, so it is important you are standing out!
  • Increase scholarship opportunities
    • It is great if students have closer to a 4.0 GPA for scholarship and admissions requirements to college. But they also care about how students are involved in school and in the community! Teachers, School Counselors, Principals, Staff, and Community Leaders may write you a letter of recommendation for a scholarship during high school; it is important they have a great amount of information that they can write about you. Students: What opportunities are available to you and what are you doing with those opportunities?
  • Develop strong personal skills
    • You might be a little nervous to volunteer/get involved in organizations, however this is a great way for you to meet new people and to work on personal skills like communication, leadership skills, planning, time-management, etc.
  • Meet new people
    • Networking is key! When you meet new people, you are opening yourself up to their world! This will allow you to grow as an individual! It is important you know various groups of people that will help you be successful!
