too many young people are abandoned in the “achievement gap”

Help us Close the Gap

Hook Arts Media offers vital media and arts programming to young people throughout NYC. More than 80% of our students attend transfer schools- schools designed to serve over-aged and under-credited (OAUC) students. OAUC students are at a significantly higher risk to drop out of high school, but with flexible and creative programming, we help re-engage young people with their learning so that they can stay on track to graduate. In addition to in-school programming, we also provide after-school and summer filmmaking intensives, as well as performance opportunities to pre-professional youth groups onstage at Red Hook Fest and Red Hook, Move It!

For more than 25 years, we have worked to help support young people, equipping them with the tools to become our next generation of artists, activists, and leaders. Learn more about students impacted by our programs—like Alanis, Louric, Lorenzo, and Kyra.
