Wesner Pierre is a native New Yorker whose professional path was shaped by the afterschool programs he attended in his youth. Growing up in kinship foster care in one of the city’s most notorious public housing projects in South Jamaica, Queens, Wesner avoided the negative influences in his neighborhood by enrolling in afterschool programs. Today, he dedicates his life to helping youth overcome the same racial and economic disparities and life challenges that affected him as a child.

Wesner was a 2015 participant in the American Express Leadership Academy and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the City College of The City University of New York and a Master of Arts degree, with a focus in public management from Queens College of The City University of New York.
