Tawanda Jones

Img 6433

Tawanda Jones was 15 years old when she founded the Camden Sophisticated Sisters Drill Team 31 years ago, not imagining that it would become a lifelong calling. Over three decades, the group has practiced wherever they could and mentored over 4,000 Camden youth, essentially becoming a life-saving nonprofit organization disguised as a drill team. In one of the poorest cities in America, Tawanda strives to give its children, their families and communities purpose and self-esteem, and to motivate and empower them to fulfill their potential.
