This download is a custom career. This means that you will need the NRaas Careers mod installed in order to use the download in your game.
All my teens and children have been through the standard afterschool activities dozens of times, so they were needing something new. As a result, I bring you six new afterschool activities for the children and teens.

For these activities to show up in game, you'll need Nraas Careers Mod and Nraas Careers School. The activities work on patch 1.69.

Four of the activities are for kids and teens and two are just for teens.
These require Generations to work. However, some skills won't be built if the appropriate Expansion Packs are not installed. These packs are not absolutely required for the clubs but they're advised.
If Showtime is installed, the sims will build their Pool and Dominoes skills.
If Late Night is installed, the sims will build their Darts and Club Dancing skills.
If Ambitions is installed, the sims will build their Gnubb skills.

The career has been tested but if you do run into any problems, don't hesitate to let me know and I'll see what I can do.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
