All Summer 16
Brownsville Leadership Project's Summer Institute engaged 40 participants in a 6 week intensive centered around team-building workshops and internships. The workshops covered youth activism, political education, violence, relationships, and community organizing. BCJC partnered up with Dance Theater Etc. to provide internships such as dance, videography, music and media.
