Brownsville Justice Community Program Participants Create Powerful Documentaries

Every program cycle, the Brownsville Justice Community Program hosts multiple tracks that range in content based on the interests of the participants.  In each track, participants work on personal and community projects that speak to their experiences in Brownsville, their goals as they develop as young adults, and tangible ways they can use their development to build their community (activating desolate spaces, increasing public safety, exploring economic and employment opportunities, etc.).

Our most recent graduating classes participated in the Young Adult Entrepreneurship Program track, the Community Benefit Projects track, the Mark Morris Dance Group track, and the Reel Works track.

The participants in the Reel Works track develop skills to become film makers, set designers, writers, and to get exposed to various other career paths the film industry offers.  Our first class of Reel Works participants to complete the track not only created their first films, but also had their films premiered at the New York Institute of Technology!  



Join me in congratulating our Reel Works participants by watching their newly premiered documentaries below...
