Kristie Levandoski

Founder & Executive Director

I once was a teenager, who matured into an adult. I met the love of my life and became a wife. As a wife, I was blessed with the ultimate gift, Motherhood! I am a mom of five children, three of whom successfully survived their teenage years. A son who’s in the thick of his teen years and a daughter whose teenage years can’t come fast enough for her.My name is Kristie Levandoski, and all throughout my life I have been involved with the youth. As a coach, substitute teacher, camp counselor, Sunday school teacher, mentor, youth leader and an now an Executive Director of a non profit organization for teenagers. I believe it’s our duty to instill worth and value into our youth’s lives. I have a passion for youth and it’s a force that drives me to tap into and bring out youth’s hidden talents and untouched determination to be engaged in a world bigger than themselves. It’s the giving value to a life, that will change a life!

Financial advisor

Hello!  My name is Kimberly Pohubka.  I am A Place To Go’s… Financial Adviser.  I graduated in 2006 with my bachelors degree in Business Management and have been working for BBU Bakeries ever since.  In 2008 I started a Non-Profit called KaleidoScope Therapeutic Riding Program, Inc., an organization that helps individuals with disabilities through horses.  When Kristie first brought up her idea of A Place To Go… I was extremely interested and wanted to join in the efforts to help the teens.  As a mom of 3 young children, I only hope my future teens will have a place to find value and have the opportunity to grow in the areas they are interested in.  I am thrilled to be a part of A Place To Go’s journey and look forward to all the amazing accomplishments.

Teen facilitator

What a concept! A place where teens can go after school instead of just ‘hanging around’ or isolated within the world of digital devices. When I heard of Kristie’s vision, I knew I wanted to help promote her ideals. I had recently retired from a career of teaching and felt my knowledge in management and organizational skills could be of use.  I was honored to be part of her team during the first few years and am looking forward as the program expands. The interactions with the students make it all worthwhile.”  Ms Joy Carter graduated from the College of New Jersey with a Master’s degree in Special Education, as well as certification in English as a Second Language (ESL).  She retired from the LenapeRegional  High School District in 2014.
