Colleges are interested in recruiting students who are interesting, worldly, passionate involved and caring. Resumes are the space where you tell colleges, scholarships and potential employers who you are outside of the classroom, what interests you and how you have decided to pursue those interests. Very often, colleges (and scholarships) base their acceptance decisions on your extra-curricular involvement. For this, it is very important you get involved in extra-curricular activities while in high school and that you progressively document these activities in your resume.
This worksheet can help you organize the information you need to build your resume. You can also draw inspiration from this sample resume.
