Mona Global Citizen Clubs are formed to bring together youth who want to make an impact on the world through supporting the education for the children in need and through service to the community. The goals of each club are to raise the awareness of students about international development and global citizenship and how they may have an impact on the betterment of the world even while in school and beyond into their adult lives.
Global Citizen Clubs in schools is the brainchild of Chloe Rastegar. She attended a Mona event where the founder and the principal of Badi School presented on their school in Panama. She was so inspired by their stories that she decided that she wanted to go and visit the school in Panama, and she did. When she returned, she decided that she really wanted to do something concrete with her friends so that they organize activities in support of the students in one of Mona's projects and also in service to their community. Activities? Krispy Kreme donut fundraiser, Carnival fundraisers selling frozen lemonade, Halloween face painting for Toberman Neighborhood Center, Valentine’s Day treats for local school, Diaper Drive for San Pedro Rainbow Shelter,, and most recently launching an online store to sell branded Mona clothings, "MonaInBloom."
