David Klauber, MSW

Senior Program Associate

David brings more than a decade of experience in the nonprofit sector providing both direct and indirect services for under-served youth experiencing displacement, homelessness, trafficking, and mental health challenges. His experience working across sectors and organizations, from small grassroots organizations to large international nonprofits, equips him with a multi-dimensional understanding of the challenges faced by individuals at the intersection of multiple systems. Trained as mental health clinician with a focus on complex power and privilege dynamics, he brings empowerment theory to everything he does. Having built a keen understanding of the multitude of overlaid challenges that face direct service providers and consumers of social services, he has joined RDA to translate his passion for working with under-served young people to a system level approach.

Prior to joining the RDA team he provided mental health services as a counselor in shelters for newly arrived immigrant youth, mobile case management for transition-age foster youth within transitional housings programs, and project management and coordination for emergency protection programs serving refugee children and young people in refugee camps in East Africa.
