Briauna Wills founded Young Queens in Training,Inc. in December of 2017. Briauna has worked in human services for over a decade and after watching the physical attacks by female students on Baltimore City education professionals during that year she knew she would have to become the change in her community that she desperately wanted to see. Almost 4 years later Briauna, now a mother to a toddler daughter, feared that her daughter may 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 career 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 has 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.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of youth in our community. Your contribution today helps us to make a difference.
