Matt Zavala

Every year, the Annual Campaign supports scholarships and key programs like Back on Track. Matt Zavala is a Back on Track alum and says the program helped him become who he is today. According to Matt, some people may not trust the effectiveness of a program like Back on Track, but he believes he is proof that it really makes a difference.
“Not only am I staying out of trouble, but I’m doing the right thing for me, and for others,” says Matt.” Back on Track helped me in so many ways. I’ve been able to take what I learned with me. I’m out of trouble; I made it into a great school where I have been on honor roll since 9th grade, and I have a great job.” Matt suggests this program to anybody trying to make a positive change in their life.
