About the leadership team

Ron DeMet (Executive Director and Mentor) joined BTMVA as a volunteer in 2015 serving as a mentor in the Prince George (N.B. Clements Middle School) Circle. Ron, a high school and JROTC instructor, was instrumental in having the BTMVA program established in Prince George County. In addition to regular military assignments, he spent considerable time developing and implementing programs assisting youth to make sound decisions around their choices about school, friends, alcohol, drug, and goals. Upon his retirement from the military (after 20 years) and based on his volunteer experience with Boys to Men, Ron expressed interest in the Executive Director position, in which he was hired full time in August 2016. As Executive Director, Ron will lead BTMVA’s growth in the community through development of our organizational and administrative structure.

 

Steve Martin (Program Director and Mentor) went through the Reclaiming Your Teenage Fire (RTF) mentor training in 2002 and began working with the BTM chapter in Washington, DC shortly thereafter. In 2005, he began taking young men from Richmond with him to DC-based activities, and he began organizing BTM activities in Richmond in 2009. In 2010, BTMVA was officially incorporated and Steve Martin became the Executive Director. In the past 10 years, Steve has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the BTMVA program and to the young men it serves. He is dedicated to building a strong program that will benefit not only the boys, but also the community in which they live. In 2016, Steve assumed the newly created role of Program Director, which allows him to focus on growing the reach of the organization within the community and building strong mentors and Circles for the young men.

 

Dave Bolduc (Chairman of the Board, Development Coordinator, and Mentor) grew up in Lowell, MA where he attended Lowell Technological Institute (now UMass Lowell) and received a BS in Chemical Engineering. Dave went on to receive his MBA and has worked 32 years for Kimberly-Clark Corporation with positions in Operations, Logistics, and Engineering. Dave went through the RTF mentor training in 2007. In 2008, he co-founded the BTM New England chapter, serving as Executive Director and Treasurer from 2008 to 2010. Upon relocating to Richmond, he immediately became involved with BTMVA.
