Mrs. Virginia Warfield Brieant
It is with great sadness that the Board of the Brieant Youth Alliance shares the news of the passing of Mrs. Virginia Brieant.
Mrs. Brieant was the mother of our Board Interim President, Charles L. Brieant III and wife of the late Judge Charles L. Brieant, Jr. a former chief judge of the United States District Court of the Southern District of New York. The Brieant Youth Alliance (BYA), a non-profit 501( C)(3) organization, formerly known as the Charles L. Brieant Center, was established in recognition of the Judge’s concern for children of all socio-economic levels (especially at risk youth) and the importance that life-long learning played in their lives. Norman Fulton, Executive Director Emeritus, founded the non-profit organization in 2009 Judge Brieant’s honor.
After the death of Judge Brieant in 2008, Mrs. Brieant was the force behind the continued development of the Brieant Youth Alliance and has been a big supporter throughout the years. She loved the work and the contributions that the BYA provided to the community schools. Through active partnerships with the Ossining Public Schools and financial support from communities in Westchester County, unique after-school programs were developed and provided free of charge to the schools. Her wisdom and support will truly be missed.

What people are saying about the Brieant Youth Alliance
On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I write to support the programs of The [Brieant Youth Alliance], which are meant to supplement the educational experience of our students, and seem devised, in addition, to address issues we find crucial to the maturation of our youth.
The development of the skills you’re working to build in our young people will lead children to produce and live in a richer society, healthier in mind as well as body.William R. Hanauer
