Words vs. Pictures

Words vs. Pictures uses the visual and literary arts to spark creativity and self-exploration. Participants complete both writing and visual arts projects and in the process develop the confidence and interpersonal communication skills essential for success in an increasingly interconnected world.

Book Clubs

We currently offer two book clubs – one for elementary school students and one for middle and high school students.

  • Bookworms: Our club for elementary school aged readers encourages a love of books from a young age.
  • Beyond Words: Our literary club for teens aims to promote reading and engage its members in natural topics of discussion for today’s young adults.

Photo Narratives

This 3 month program teaches middle and high school students the art of photography and storytelling through pictures. Students will participate in a themed project and photo exhibit. Preference is given to students residing in the Wakefield section of the Bronx.

Peer Mentorship

Through a partnership with Prep for Prep, our students will receive support and guidance from a group of exceptionally bright high school students who are poised to become leaders in business, education, and government.
