About Michelle Menclewicz

Michelle graduated from UCLA in 2008 with a bachelor's degree in International Economics and Spanish. She discovered Global Brigades in the summer of 2007, when the organization was launching the Business Brigades program in Honduras. As a huge proponent of the social enterprise model and with an interest in working with businesses in underresourced communities, Michelle immediately signed up for the first Business Brigade and then joined two more in the same year. After having learned more about the program and best practices for setting up successful chapters on campus, Michelle along with a few fellow UCLA brigaders developed a platform for engaging and supporting all student leaders planning brigades. During this time, Michelle was also working with Navigant Consluting in the Disputes and Litigation department. Eventually, her Global Brigades volunteer work became a full-time job and she officially became a member of the team as Director of Student Affairs in January 2010. A year later, she moved to Panama to support the team on restructuring the programs to focus in one central region in East Panama and Darien. She is currently in India, working remotely with Global Brigades on Student Leadership projects. Being a part of the Global Brigades family has been a incredible experience and she looks forward to more years to come.
