is it possible for me to raise my gpa from a 2.0(75%) to a 3.5(90)? (the gpa calculations are from this chart)

i am currently enrolled in Brooklyn Technical High School in nyc and it just recently hit me that i am doing horrible in school. i am asking this pathetic question because it bothers me that i might not be able to go to a decent university. Also i am not taking any honors or AP classes during my sophmore year (mainly because of my horrible grades). But i do plan to improve my grades during the coming school year. Lastly i only failed one class during my freshman year (some design class or DDP).
Ps. my second question is : if i were to do say 400+ volunteer hours at a clinic, would it some how help my chance of getting into a good college?
