El Puente — Spanish for The Bridge — is a youth and community development organization in North Brooklyn that inspires, nurtures and supports youth and adult members in transforming their community and the world.  Founded in 1982, on the Southside of Williamsburg, today it works directly with more than 2,500 individuals each year and reaches thousands more in Williamsburg and Bushwick through its arts presentations and community outreach campaigns. Our programs include a comprehensive Arts and Cultural Center, a Community Health & Environment Institute (CHE), four Youth Leadership Centers, and a partnership with an A-rated New York City public high school we founded in 1993, the El Puente Academy for Peace and Justice.
