Chosen Training was established in 2015. It was founded by Liberty High School graduate, Jermaine Worley who had a voracious desire to serve and be light for the children in the East Bay Area. Who then reached out to his partner Dwayne Freeman who also felt a calling to create what is now known as Chosen Training.
