When a kid goes to school, 70% of the time is spent in class trying to sharpen the skills of the kids. However, kids must be made to understand that life requires more than their academic skills to survive.
One of the best ways is by introducing them to student organizations. Student organizations are groups that are made up of students with a common goal. But why should a kid join these student organizations?
1. Helps the kid learn about themselves.
By joining a student organization, the kid can learn about themselves. This is where they learn their special skills, strengths, weaknesses, their leadership potential, etc. This is also where they come to learn about their talents and hobbies.
2. Trains them teamwork.
To do a lot of work, you must gang up in a group. This is one thing that kids do not understand. They prefer doing things independently rather than as a group. In a student organization, the kids start to understand why teamwork is very crucial in life. They do away with the belief of doing tasks on their own and getting the reward.
In a student organization, kids participate in community drives which are only successful when they come together as a team.
3. Make friends.
We have all been in a situation where we made friends only to come and realize we choose the wrong friends. In school, kids only join student organizations of their choice. This means that they will be interacting with people who share a common goal/ objectives. This relates to a similarity in character and passion. They will, therefore, be in a position to make meaningful relationships and friends who will not affect their character negatively.
Student’s organizations are indeed clubs that every kid should join for their growth and development.
