Extra curricular activities and workexperience

Hi,
I was abroad for a 7montjs cause of family stuff so i wasn’t able to enrol to my first choose sixthform . Instead i enrolled to this online a level learning thingy however im finding it so hard to join extra curricular activities cause i don’t have a school that directly provides it . I’ve also emailed law firms and shops for work experience and i haven’t heard back what do i do
I think maybe give them a ring if you have direct contact details for them. You can also volunteer which helps build up great experience and I could give you some tips on some online groups if you’re interested in what sort of hobbies do you like? Extra curricular wise, you could maybe go to a local leisure centre or community centre and see what they have for your age group
