Matthew Boland

Boland-001Matt’s first recollection of volunteering goes back to when he was five years old and volunteered with his family to help families in need at Church of the Nativity’s Adopt a Family program, a program that Matt continues to support to this day. Clearly his parents and older brother set a wonderful standard for Matt and inspired him to volunteer. This was not the only lesson regarding volunteering that Matt learned at home. When his older brother had challenges academically, Matt started tutoring him. Matt realized he had gifts that he could share with others and he brought this out into the community. At Serra High School, Matt has served as a peer tutor and an Academic Captain on the football team. He also is a dedicated volunteer to the Admission’s office at school.  In the community, Matt has volunteered with Rebuilding Together, St. Vincent de Paul, at the Fire Department’s Junior Fire Academy and at various Rotary events. Matt’s true passion however is with the tutoring of other students. He has recently taken on leadership roles to expand the tutoring that he and others do at Serra High School.
