Summary of FBIIB Programming:

  1. New_Gen Production House: In conjunction with our production partner, Transcendence Media, FBIIB will offer videography & production training to NYC youth deferred from crimnal  and juvenille justice agencies.  Our 12-week workshop not only teaches them a marketable skill, but working in teams, helps them to find inspiration in producing 2-min. video stories featuring men and women who maneged to overcome the obstacles in their path to post-incarceration success.

  2. From Bars II BeyondDocu-Series:   Is an episodic glimpse into the behind-the-scene activities of our workshop participants as they learn, film and producing their video projects.  The episodes will feature both the interview content they produce and some commnetary regarding that process.  The aim is to inspire our young participants and other at-risk youth to shape their own success-stories in light of the insight acquired from their film subjects.

  3. Aspirations From the Inside (AFI): COMING SOON is a small but impactful program that allows anyone to nominate an incarcerated friend or relative who recently completed a significant program achievement (academic or technical) to be considered for posting on our web and social media pages and qualify for our monthly AFI awards.

 

Our programs also help reduce some of the stigma faced by formerly incarcerated people, particularly by educating the public about their unsung talents, potential, achievements, and success stories.
