Wesley is the Director of Development at MissionFit. In this capacity, Wesley is developing revenue streams, generating partnerships with other youth-serving organizations, and working to build a community centered around health. Recently, Wesley designed a summer workforce development program called Strength Ambassadors to create young leaders with the capacity to become catalysts for health in Baltimore.
Through free fitness classes to Baltimore’s youth ages 11 to 24, MissionFit uses movement, fitness, and safe space as a vehicle to drive continued personal growth. Participation in a consistent, positive fitness program helps youth to develop confidence and self-acceptance, work ethic, and important life skills such as goal setting, accountability and entrepreneurship. Youth come to MissionFit from nearby neighborhood communities, as well as through partnerships and youth development organizations.
