Red Hook Labs Education and Jobs Initiative, a 501(c)(3) joint venture with The Point Community Development Corporation, provides a comprehensive photography program linking year-round education, meaningful employment opportunities, and mentoring for local public high school students at Red Hook Labs, Brooklyn and at its newest studio, Downtown Labs, in Downtown Los Angeles. Labs works in partnership with well-established public schools and community centers to ensure cohesive, local support. Our mission is to create centers that provide high-caliber photography arts education to teens and young adults who would otherwise have no exposure to it, to materially advance their skills and access to job opportunities that can allow for long-term success, and demonstrably make a positive impact on the local community.
**Labs is seeking 35mm or digital camera donations for our nonprofit arts education programs! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to make a tax deductible donation.
