Most students devote many hours of rigorous studying to achieve academic excellence for future success. The importance of extracurricular activities, however, should also be viewed as an avenue to success. Many studies have demonstrated that students who participate in after-school programs or sports groups learn valuable skills related to teamwork, fundraising, and leadership. These valuable social skills can be seen as the precursor to advances in careers as diverse as marketing, technology development, and management. Students who excel both inside and outside the classroom develop skill sets that provide them with the tools to truly succeed.
