About Us

Made in Brownsville® is a nonprofit that seeks to increase access to creative and innovative fields for at-risk youth in Brownsville, Brooklyn through employment and mentorship around design projects that challenge the local narrative of violence and chronic disease.

Modeled as a creative service enterprise, our projects teach design thinking, art, multimedia and communication skills to give young people the technical and leadership tools needed to advocate for themselves and their community. MiB offers studios and mentorship in urban, landscape, and architectural design, printmaking, murals, 3D modeling and fabrication, photography, web design, graphic design and video. Design mentors collaborate with youth on projects that impact the vitality of the community as well as client commissioned creative projects.
