About Reel Works

Reel Works provides a free filmmaking program continuum for NYC teens. Using a unique one-on-one mentoring model, we challenge at-risk youth to tell their stories and have their voices heard. In turn, they build vital skills of literacy, leadership and self-confidence to create productive futures.

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. All our workshops are standards-based, rigorous and centered on literacy, storytelling, hands-on learning and a commitment to excellence.
