Organizational involvement has been presumed to have both advantageous and disadvantageous effects on students’ wellbeing. Past research has shown that positive effects of organizational involvement include more social activity that leads to stress reduction, while negative effects include heavier workloads and time management difficulties that lead to a stress increase. The goal of the research study is to determine if there is a difference in stress level between De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute’s (DLSMHSI) senior high school students who are involved in school organizational activities to those who are not involved in school organizational activities during the conduct of Home-based Alternative Learning Modalities (HBALM) for SY 2021-2022. The study will be using a quantitative-correlational research design and will be conducted on Google Forms, a virtual survey collecting platform. A sample of 223 participants had been surveyed, divided into two groups of 114 participants who are members of an organization, and 109 participants who are not. This study will analyze the gathered data using an independent t-test. The data shown shows a small significant difference between the physiological, emotional, behavioral, and cognitive stress levels of students who are involved in organizations to those who are not involved.
