While working with diverse groups of stakeholders in India, Uganda and Nicaragua, he incorporated an asset-based community development approach that led to community led and owned initiatives.  Most recently, he served on a Peace Corps committee in partnership with the Ministry of Education where he co-designed and implemented a national project-based learning curriculum for secondary school students in Nicaragua.  Matt holds a bachelor’s degree from Pace University in Political Science.
