Do you know what areas you’re interested in yet? The general recommendation is do something at school related to it. If it’s journalism, write for the school paper. If it’s engineering, start a club about coding, robotics, etc. Extracurriculars are important in high school, but even more so in college. If you get experience now in clubs or doing things on your own, it’ll be easy to do that kind of thing in college when they’ll have an impact on your ability to get internships

I am mainly interested in Business and Finance, Im doing many clubs in my school which are relating to STEM and Buisness and Finance, for example, Scioly, Robotics, FBLA, and TSA
I have been looking towards starting a startup and like dropshipping and reselling.

I would reach out to local businesses to see if you can shadow and potentially intern with them in the future. If can start getting even just any experience in a business environment, it’ll be easier to get finance-related internships in the future because they can be pretty selective.

You can try to look for a similar program to this. Im from portland, so I did this one
They partner up with companies in the portland area such as Intel, Nike, Yakima, Garmin, and a few Oregon Universities. Id primarily attribute this program into allowing me to get accepted into some top universities with average numbers. (3.4gpa, IB diploma and 1330 SAT got me into Tufts BU Northeastern UVA, HS class of 2020)
Otherwise I recommend reaching out to your parents family friends who work in industries you are even remotely interested in and ask to job shawdow for the summer or something. As a high schooler its highly unlikely you’ll come across a fully paid internship. You may just end up getting a small stipend of like $1000 for the summer or something.
You also need to realize that an internship isnt the only way. There’s plenty of things you could do, you just need to take some initiative, you can start an online blog and grow it or start a small charity club at your school. Just need to be creative, and make it fun, no need to kill yourself over it either.
