...Is this always a healthy addition to a CV? I have an opportunity to volunteer my time at a local high school during the academic year, assisting the teacher and helping students in lab classes and on problem sets. Is this something worth participating in, or will grad schools typically overlook this sort of thing?
(If I participate for 3 semesters, I get a letter of commendation from the Dean. Not to be confused with letter of recommendation. Not sure if this helps at all, either).
