Mentor Briauna Wills founded Young Queens in Training,Inc. in December of 2017. After working in the human services field for over seven years she knew she wanted to be the change in her community that she desperately wanted to see. Briauna now a mother to a infant daughter, feared that her daughter would grow up like most female youth in urban communities, having to experience adversities like bullying, peer pressure , unadressed mental heath and trauma . Briauna who interned at the ACLU of Maryland throughout her High School carer advocated for adequate city school funding . She would later go on to work as a Community Health Worker for Health Care for the Homeless still advocating but this time for vulnerable adult clients. In early 2018 Briauna solidified Young Queens in Training Mentor Programs relationship with a local recreation center Herring Run Rec to host weekly meeting sessions for it’s participants . Over time Y.Q.I.T‘s census of ten doubled . Validating the need for this program. In December of 2018, Young Queens in Training had officially become a 501 c(3) non-profit organization . This status created many opportunities for the youth we serve and put our organization in alignment with it’s mission to reach as many at risk female youth as possible. Briauna’s hard work and dedication to Baltimore Citys population of at risk youth made it possible for Young Queens in Training to partner with different agencys in Maryland to provide a variety of wrap around services and support to its participants.
It is our mission to reach female youth in Baltimore City through mentorship. Young Queens in Training is a afterschool mentoring program, whose focus is providing supportive services to girls ages 8-18 years. Through an evidence based curriculmn we are able to teach the importance of educational awareness,self love/self care ,behavioral modification , building healthy relationships,life skills training and coping with grief and loss .
