St. Peter’s Health Partners, WNYT-NewsChannel 13 and the Times Union have once again teamed up to “uncover” and honor youth in the Capital Region whose volunteer work touches the lives of our residents and improves the quality of life in this area.
The program, “13 Kids Who Care,” is now in its 19th year of recognizing truly exceptional kids who cast a bright light on our future.
Meet Mat Adler, an 11th grader at Albany High School. Mat’s volunteer efforts with the Boys and Girls Club truly set him apart as a “kid who cares.” As the program director of the Rising Stars Piano Program, he provides free piano lessons to kids in grades kindergarten through eighth in the cities of Albany, Schenectady, and Troy.
