Adam grew up on Long Island, New York, in a small suburb, about an hour from the Big Apple. He grew up living and learning in a household that emphasized service in all aspects: service to oneself, service to one’s community, and service to the world around oneself. Adam completed his undergraduate degrees in Transformative Educational Studies and Biology, respectively, this past May at Boston College. During the last four years, Adam fostered a passion for mentorship through many extracurricular programs at BC, such as the Freshman League, the May River Scholarship Program and the Lynch Senate Student Mentorship Program. Adam’s long-term goals focus on creating safe and brave spaces for students of all ages and backgrounds to express their identities and further develop their sense of self-worth on their journeys to achieving their fullest potential. Outside of the classroom, Adam enjoys hiking and sightseeing, attempting to cook with an array of ingredients, and enjoying board game nights with his friends. Adam is excited to join the developing Volunteer Management Team and to further propel the theory and mission of 826 Boston into action.
