Hi! I’m in highschool in 10th grade and I was wondering if volunteer work really makes a difference on college applications. I could volunteer at the hospital but I’m so lazy I don’t want to do it unless it’ll REALLY look good for college. Does it even really matter?

Dear Student,

YES it does look good on a college application and it also looks good when you are trying to find a job.
I have to say I appreciate your honesty “I’m so lazy” and I’m glad you are considering volunteering, but truthfully won’t it be nice if you suddenly realized you loved it.
Helping others is very rewarding. You may find that volunteering not only looks good on your college app, it looks good in your life.

Good Luck & Huge Muther Hugs,

One tough Muther
