Teenager’s Impressive Extracurricular Resume

Kadin Wisniewski, a 12th grade Renaissance Charter School Student from Jackson Height, is a true pillar of his community. In the summer of 2008 at the age of 14—angered by the slow response of our government to hurricane Katrina—he went to New Orleans with a group of kids his age to help rebuild the city that was devastated by the notorious hurricane. To help fund his trip, Kadin organized a fundraiser in church his family goes to. Two years later, he is gearing up for another summer of humanitarian work in The Big Easy.

Kadin’s inspiring work doesn’t stop there. This busy teenager is a very active volunteer, participating in many community events. On top of that, he is a member of a band called “Once Again” that had its first CD “11 Hours” released just last month. That’s right—watch out Jonas Brothers!
(You can download Kadin’s amazing music from iTunes.)

Kadin may be only 16 years old, yet his Resume is filled with an impressive variety of extracurricular activities which will surely have a positive impact on his future success as a college student.

How about you, fellow LaGuardians, what do you have to show on your transfer applications or to your future employers? Share your story here.

Comments, please!!!!!


  1. I am amazed by Kadin's bravery. People like Kadin make this world a better living place.Well, I don't really have anything to write in my resume yet but I beleive that we all have abilities to make differences no matter how big or small; all we need to do is reach out..

  2. Which kid in the picture is Kadin? So what upcoming events does PTK have in mind?

  3. Well said Sujata!!!
    Emmanuel, Kadin is the guitar player-or hero?:)
    Upcoming events will be posted regularly on the blog. You need to come to our general membership meetings to find out about our events or help us decide which ones to organize.

  4. Thanks for writing this! As was said, I'm the guitar player in the picture. My bandmates are Dylan Maida (keys) and Dana Shepherd (drums).

    If you search "Once Again 11 Hours" on the iTunes Store homepage you'll find the album available for purchase (just under $7!). Thanks everyone for the support.


  5. It takes a lot of determination and courage to come up with something like kadin did.I took part in some volunteer services back home in my country and I believe that a devotional community service puts me out of myself and lets me see a different part of myself .Its is my second semester here and I am really looking forward to getting indulged in some extracurricular activities soon.

  6. That's the spirit, Hira! Make sure you come to our next general meeting on April 21 to learn about the different opportunities for you to participate.
