Bel Air High School has a ton of clubs available for students, and new clubs are added yearly. This year, we have the addition of the AAPI Heritage Club, Girls Who Code and Kindness Club.

Interested in joining one of these 3 new clubs? Here’s the info you need to know!

AAPI Heritage ClubThe Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Club was created to help students of BAHS  “embrace and share their culture and traditions with others,” club president Shudan Jew stated. They want to create a safe space for the BAHS community to have important discussions and meet others with similar backgrounds to their own.  Their goal is to advocate for cultural, civil, and humanitarian issues. It’s important to them that all AAPI identities are well represented. The club meets every third Thursday of the month in C101 for snacks and discussions. Their next meeting will be Thursday, October 20th. With any questions reach out to Shudan Jew or Ms. Megan Lukasavage, the club sponsor.

Girls Who CodeGirls Who Code is a club that advocates for women representation in coding aspects, whether that is in careers or for fun. It’s a space where girls can learn about coding and have a safe space to learn and discuss. They meet the 2nd and 4th Tuesday in Mrs. Capozzoli’s room, A220. With any questions, reach out to the student leader, Shreena Thakker, or Mrs. Jill Capozzoli, the club sponsor.

Kindness ClubKindness Club is a club advocating to make BAHS a happier, more inclusive space by providing random acts of kindness. They hope to promote connections and involvement by helping their peers, teachers, and staff members through feel-good actions. They meet every B-Day Friday in C224. As for membership, currently anyone can join! Show up during regularly scheduled meeting times and you’re free to join. The process for the club is that you can nominate anyone for kindness. Once the nomination is received, the club will put together a card, message, or small gift to let the person know that they are thinking of them. To nominate someone to receive an act of Kindness, you can fill out a nomination form located in Dr. Rebecca Gault’s room, C224. Soon, they plan on having an Instagram page so nominations can be electronic. With any questions, you can contact the club president and co-president, Emily Fatkin, the vice-president, Schaley Schaulis, or Dr. Gault, the club sponsor.

If you think Bel Air High School lacks representation in a certain area or have a good idea for a club, reach out to Mr. Robert Deleva, school principal, about starting the club. BAHS has tons to offer, and we are excited to see the change that these new clubs can make.
