Wyneshia Foxworth

Chief Operating Officer 

A Philadelphia native, Wyneshia has extensive experience in leadership roles with national service and
education organizations. Immediately after earning her bachelor’s degree from Morgan State University,
she served two years with City Year Greater Philadelphia, as both a founding corps member and senior
corps member in the Communications Department. After completing her terms of service, she joined the
staff, leading groups of idealistic young people in schools as a Program Manager, Program Director and
Deputy Director. In September 2005, Wyneshia was one of the first City Year staff members on the
ground after Hurricane Katrina, answering the call to serve in Baton Rouge, Louisiana as a founding Co-
Executive Director of City Year Louisiana. After a successful launch, she returned back to her hometown
to lead City Year Greater Philadelphia.


Wyneshia’s commitment to the success of her city didn’t stop there, she then held roles as the Chief
Operating Officer for Communities In Schools of Philadelphia, Founding Executive Director of College
Possible Philadelphia and most recently she worked at Mastery Charter Schools Inc. In her roles, she was
responsible for the day to day operations, HR, program development and delivery, philanthropy and
external communications.


Wyneshia is passionate about youth and their education. Her desire to see an increase in youth
empowerment and social change has been her north star as she trains and develops the leaders of today
and tomorrow.

After a decade in the corporate sector, I decided to turn my passion into full time work by going into the social work field. Having had the experience of coming alongside many in a helping capacity from as far as Brazil, South America to my local community of the Bronx, NY, it only seemed natural to me to make that change. 

 

 

As a bilingual/bicultural (Spanish), cisgender, black female I understand the impact of race and privilege. So, after several years of experience in the social services sector I transitioned into the role of Organizational Development Specialist and had opportunity to consult with executive leadership on systems (or organizational) change through needs assessments, dialogues and workshops on race and diversification, as well as staff training on clinical theories and social service delivery models that guided direct work with clients. Through partnerships with agencies such as The New York City Board of Education, The New York City Human Resources Administration (HRA), and the Department of Homeless Service (DOH) I also have assisted clients in navigating through various systems.

Despite my enthusiasm for organizational work, I also recognize the importance of the clinical work. With that said, I have also merged the two through a partnership with students and staff from Drexel University. Through this partnership residents from an inpatient substance misuse treatment program were able to join Drexel University yoga students to learn from one another and to develop mindfulness skills to assist them in their recovery. My work also includes the training and development of BSW and MSW students and the completion of a SIFI (Seminar In Field Instruction) from the University of Pennsylvania.

 

In addition, I have extensive training in trauma care, suicide prevention, and completed studies for credentialed alcohol and substance abuse counseling. My work spans the life course of children as young as 5 years old and geriatric patients in their 90’s. I am also a strong advocate of the use of evidence-based practices and am trained in various models including Motivational Interviewing (MI), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Skills Training in Affective and Interpersonal Regulation Narrative Therapy (STAIR-NST), Brief Strategic Therapy (BST), Daily Living Functional Assessment for Adults (DLA-20), Trauma Recovery Empowerment Model for Women (W-TREM), and the Columbia Suicide Severity Rating Scale (C-SSRS).

 

My goal is to continue to use my knowledge base of over a decade of experience, and passion for the helping profession, to aid clients in exploring and identifying their strengths and deepening their resilience.

Mondy earned his Master in Social Work from Andrews University with an emphasis on Marriage and Family Counseling.  He believes that life comes with anticipated twists and turns that can often leave us confused, hurt, and disoriented.

Mondy also believes that all of us greatly benefit when we create our own village of selected people that we trust.

 

A support system that can be there for us in our times of need.
