Very few projects have been as eye-opening and surprising as this video we produced for the Workforce Initiative of the Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) about what it’s like to be a Juvenile Counselor in one of the City’s two juvenile detention facilities. As a kid in New York, you definitely want to avoid “juvie” but the staff we met were really inspiring; truly focused on giving kids whose lives are in turmoil the support and encouragement they need to get the chance to turn things around. We’re grateful to our production partners at City University of New York for the opportunity to tell these stories.
