Gabriele Delmonaco talks about A Chance in Life an International Non-Profit that Provides Food, Shelter, and Education for Underprivileged and Refugee Youth Throughout the World. This is episode 384 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.
President and Executive Director of A Chance In Life since February 2015, Gabriele Delmonaco heads the national operations of the organization from its New York office, reporting directly to the Chairman of the Board. He is leading the organization in our next phase of growth and international expansion.
A Chance In Life is an international nonprofit that provides shelter, food and education - including financial literacy - for underprivileged and refugee youth throughout the world including here in the United States.
Originally known as Boys and Girls Towns, the organization came into being 75 years ago after World War II. Its goal was to provide a home to vast numbers of children who had been displaced and to give them “a chance in life.” Not only did the institution offer them a home, but its unique system of “self-government” gave these young people the opportunity to pursue an education and to develop the confidence and the creativity they need to become active participants in their communities.
Fast forward to today and this international nonprofit is providing shelter and support to nearly 4,000 homeless, vulnerable and refugee youth in nine countries with plans to open one in the United States in the coming weeks. ACIL’s unique model of self-governance lets youth have complete control over how their town runs - even forming their own currency. They not only learn to think critically, but how to speak out for themselves and those around them.
Gabriele, a native Italian, moved to the United States in 2001 from Rome. He possesses more than 25 years’ experience in the non-profit field with a proven track record as a chief operating officer and as a fundraiser, managing multinational teams.
Most recently, Gabriele served the Jesuits of the New York and New England Provinces as VP for Advancement and Communications, leading a successful merger of the two provinces. Previously, he served as Chief Executive Officer of the U.S. branch of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA), an international agency that provides humanitarian aid and pastoral support in the Middle East, Northeast Africa, Eastern Europe, and Asia. Gabriele also worked at the Vatican as Associate Director of Finance for eight years.
Gabriele holds an MBA in marketing and a BS in organizational management from Nyack College in New York. He resides in New York City with his family.
