The “People’s History of the Bronx” is an after-school program that gives the opportunity to high school students looking to complete their community service hours a chance to engage with the untold history of Bronx freedom fighters through the mediums of art, music and film. Together, we will learn about how different communities in the Bronx have organized around various forms of social injustices and fought for social change. This program also offers participants practical leadership skills and hands-on organizing experience in current anti-displacement popular movements in the South Bronx.
The program will run every Tuesday from 4-6pm starting November 1st through the end of the school year. We welcome applications from any interested high school students looking to complete their community service hours and become active agents of change in their communities. Participants will also take field trips and attend community events outside of scheduled sessions. Snacks will be provided during all sessions and program directors will also ensure that all participants travel safely to and from the program.
Founded in 2015, the Bronx Social Center works to empower communities in the South Bronx, and fight for racial, gender, economic, and environmental justice in the borough. The center is run by an all-volunteer of artists, activists, students and educators.
