Reel Works

Reel Works provides free filmmaking programs for NYC youth. Using a one-on-one mentoring model, the organization challenges teens to tell their stories, which builds skills in literacy, leadership, and self-confidence.

Renewed Meringoff funding supports the development and delivery of workforce readiness workshops and internships for Reel Works teens and alumni, providing these diverse young filmmakers greater entrée to NYC’s media industry.

 “Reel Works gave me a vision. It instilled in me the idea that I am capable of doing great things and made it very clear that the film/television industry is where I belong.”
