Model Answer 1:

Besides my study, I am an active member of the "Youth Knowledge Club" in my locality and I do actively participate in different programmes they organise. I would like to thank you for allowing me the time to talk about it.
This is basically a club that encourages people to read books. It also actively take part in various social welfare related activities. The members pay only a small amount of fees and the rest of the money comes from a large NGO. The members attend the club every Sunday, from 10.00 am to 12.30 pm, and discuss different social, environmental and personal issues. Some cultural activities are also held on and these are mainly conducted by us. The members of our club enjoy the advantage of taking books to home, and they also contribute to the betterment of the local youths, their education, and moreover, social and cultural aspects in our locality.
I am a member of this club for the last 5 years and because of that, I have access to a very rich library they have. I bring books home every week and because of my involvement with the club, I have been able to read books by many writers. This has definitely helped me learn new things and enhance my knowledge. Apart from that, I take part in some cultural and social activities they organise which I find interesting and exciting. In several occasions, we have distributed books to poor children for free, stood beside victims of natural disasters and cleaned the locality. I had been able to be a part of many noble works because of my active participation with this club.
Most of us want to help people who are in need but sometimes it is not possible to reach them alone. Being involved in a club that mainly focuses on aid for people is a great way of helping others. That's why my involvement with this club is very important to me.

Alternative Answer 2:

When I was in high school, I organised a club with some of my friends and neighbours. As I recall, we named it as NAVIGATOR. We organised this club with the aim to collect donations for the flood/cyclone/earthquake victims in our country. This was actually aimed to help people and the club was a charitable organisation. Apart from that, we established a night school for the street children and a library for the club members as part of this club.
I was actually a founding member of the club and we had to work hard for a long to establish the club. Making it a helpful organisation for the people took a great deal of effort. To my surprise, this club and its activities were reported very positively in a local newspaper. I did so many things back then including donation collection, member authorization, teaching at the night school, conducting meetings and so on. I extremely enjoyed being a part of a noble cause. Though I am no longer an active member of this club, I still feel very passionately about it. It's so great to see that something that was my brainchild has grown considerably. 
It's a club where I got involved in from the very beginning of its inception. Over time, it became actually a part of my life. This club gave me the opportunity to do something good for the poor and suffering people. I felt great by contributing to this noble cause and this club brought me this opportunity.
