Youth Leadership Program Manager
Christine Monska joined The Clubhouse Network as the Youth Leadership Program Manager overseeing the Teen Summit, Alumni network, and developing a new Youth Leadership Council. She brings over ten years of experience in public policy, international relations and youth leadership development with a strong focus on women and girls’ empowerment. Before joining The Clubhouse Network, Christine designed and led the Young Women’s Initiative, a policy advocacy and leadership development program for young women, often systematically pushed to the margins, in Springfield, MA. This program was a local implementation of a national program stemming from the White House Council on Women and Girls. She also worked at the Department of Justice, Office of Senator Downing, International Center for Transitional Justice and most recently, Bard Microcollege – an associate degree program for women whose education was disrupted by parenting and/or poverty. She is passionate about collaborating with youth so they can see their immense potential and access tools to become leaders in their communities.
Christine holds a B.A. in Government from Smith College and a M.S. in Global Affairs from New York University.
