Identity in Action Program:

The JBP Identity in Action program is a year-long after school curriculum taught through activities, discussions, lectures, documentaries, guest speakers and field-trips. The program starts by challenging youth to deconstruct their identities. Throughout the year, youth grapple with the questions, “Why are you here?”, “Where did you come from?”, “Who are you?” Once the youth have a better realization of who they are, Justice by the Pen then challenges students to put their higher sense of identity into action by rebuilding their neighborhoods, participating in organizing, and gaining more autonomy over their lives. All youth organizing stems from issues that the youth themselves identify as worthy of addressing. (LEARN MORE)

Media Literacy Program:

The Media literacy program is a class that exposes students to a variety of media tools, and then allows them to chose one tool to use for a long-term project of their choice. This project can range from a mini-documentary to a weekly school tv-channel broadcast on you-tube and the school website. Although we cover newspaper writing, art/photography, and radio, the program will focus on video production, as this is our staff’s area of expertise, and students are already using this type of venue by video taping with their smart phones and uploading content. Students will have access to editing software and camera equipment. (LEARN MORE)

Just Video Project:

Just video is a monthly video service we provide to non-profits in which we produce a series of micro-documertaries highlighting each organization’s mission, feature events, or important updates. This, in turn, helps them reach their audiences with new information each month and spreads their messages via the web. While creating an updated TV channel for organizations and producing consistent, timely material, Justice by the Pen supports like minded organizations while simultaneously allowing Justice by the Pen additional resources for the social justice youth programming to function. Each JUST Video Project additionally provides a paid internships for formally incarcerated youth, teaching the ins-and-outs of journalism and video production. (LEARN MORE)
