New York, NY
The Bronx Academy of Letters is a public school located in the south Bronx. Opened in 2003, the school is dedicated to educating and empowering their 6th through 12th-grade students, many of whom face enormous struggles as part of the poorest congressional district in the country. The Bronx Letters Foundation raises public funds every year to provide the opportunities for these students that many others take for granted -- high school sports, AP curriculum, field trips, guidance toward college and much more.
This video was commissioned by the Bronx Academy of Letters to highlight the incredible students, faculty and staff that call this school home. It was shown at their annual fundraising gala.
