It’s a powerful combination that changes young lives while creating startling and original films that have been seen by over 9 million viewers since our founding in 2001. What began as a single workshop of 17 students at the Prospect Park YMCA in Park Slope, Brooklyn has grown to provide free after school and in-school programs give a voice to over 500 youth citywide. Reel Works programs are designed to engage youth through intensive in-school or after-school filmmaking workshops and to provide a safe community and a continuum of learning opportunities that extend from middle school to high school to college and beyond."
