Donate to Hook Arts Media
Whether you’ve come here to support Hook Arts Media’s free public events like Red Hook Fest, our filmmaking programs, or media and arts education programs in NYC schools, your donation today will help us serve NYC’s young people, community members, and educators. For more than 25 years, Hook Arts Media has proudly supported and served thousands of New York City youth. Our students have gone on to become educators, producers, filmmakers, and activists. Throughout our programs, they thoughtfully and critically engage with the realities of injustice and inequity, and they learn to show up and show out to facilitate the sustainable change they want to see in their communities. Join our efforts to show up and show out for our young people. Support Hook Arts Media by Giving Tuesday to help us sustain our support in the future movers, shakers, and leaders of our city.
Help us support more of NYC's young people!

Make An Impact
Hook Arts Media’s school programs generally serve transfer schools. These schools are designed to give young people a second chance to graduate from high school. Therefore, our performing and media arts classes help these students stay in school in a variety of ways:
- Improving time management
- Decreasing truancy
- Re-engaging students with their school work
- Identifying opportunities they can explore after graduation
Without support like this, these students are more than 90% more likely to drop out of school than their peers. Make an impact on schools like these by donating to Hook Arts Media.
Over 80% of Hook Arts Media students report that Hook Arts Media classes increase their commitment to timely attendance.
Career & College Development
Over 60% of Hook Arts Media students learn skills they plan to use to gain entry into their industry of interest.
Film at Hook Arts Media
Now that young people use platforms like YouTube and Instagram every day, they understand that stories are valuable. Accordingly, more young people aspire to share stories on a digital medium than ever before. But filmmaking is often cost-prohibitive, and the learning curve can also be very high. So in Hook Arts Media’s after-school programs, filmmaking students earn minimum wage while learning every step in the film production process.
With your support, Hook Arts Media can expand its vital programming to more schools. We could open our filmmaking programs to more students, instead of turning many of them away from our ever-growing waitlist.
