Director -  NTL Alumni

My experience with Need to Lead began in 2008. I originally participated in NTL events so I could put charity work on my high school applications. In the seven years since, I have come to see how Need to Lead positively affects other charities and contributes to the success of their various events. As NTL provides the majority of volunteers for many events, our impact is felt by the charities as well as those who benefit from these charities. In my time with NTL I have worked with organizations like the Special Olympics, Alzheimer’s Association, National Hemophilia Foundation, and Cradles to Crayons and taken part in events such as the Polar Plunge as well as Alzheimer’s and Hemophilia Walks. My favorite event is always the Special Olympics in Brockton, MA each spring where the athletes emulate pure joy and volunteers are constantly reminded of our reasons for volunteering.

Seeing the smiles on the faces of participants during each event inspires me to continue to volunteer with NTL and to help make a difference in the community. From the first event I helped with, Rob and the NTL team of volunteers created a fun environment while remembering our purpose: serving others and helping those less fortunate than ourselves. In my experience, no other organization has as much fun as NTL while helping as much as we do. This is part of what is keeping NTL going strong and part of the reason for our success today and for the foreseeable future. 

I graduated from Xaverian Brothers High School in 2013 and now attend Boston College where I play on the Men’s Rugby Team and study Finance and Business Analytics in the Carroll School of Management. I hope and plan to spread NTL to BC in the upcoming weeks.
