The Bronx Junior Photo League (BJPL) is a free photography and journalism program serving middle through high school students. Our free, after-school and summer photojournalism programs teach Bronx middle and high school students to use photography, writing, and research to explore social justice issues, preparing them for college and future careers. The program includes visits with internationally-renowned photographers, field trips to major cultural institutions and media outlets, and opportunities for life-changing international travel. Students and families participate in extensive college prep programming, including one-on-one counseling, financial aid workshops, and college tours.

This panel is part of Photoville Education Day, and open only to participants of this program. To learn more and to register, please go here.

    The Bronx Documentary Center

    The Bronx Documentary Center (BDC) is a non-profit gallery and educational space. Through exhibitions, screenings, and public programming, we show the work of internationally-renowned and emerging photographers and filmmakers who are dealing with the themes that guide the BDC: justice, education, community-building, and positive social change. We also provide free education programs for middle and high school students as well as professional education workshops for historically underrepresented adult Bronx-based photographers that provide opportunities for professional development and skills training in photojournalism, filmmaking and documentary photography.
