Y.Dot is a sixteen-week learning program and paid internship designed to support high school students develop leadership capacities and professional skills. Educators and staff train students to design and lead tours of No Longer Empty´s exhibition based on one subject that is related to their own lives.
We are proud to introduce the current cohort of Y.Dots tours:
Atzimba Xoyatla: The Bronx’s Reputation
Giselle Espinoza: Gentrification & Stereotypes: The Past, Present, and Future of the Bronx
Jejomar Ysit: Redefining Space
Liam Herndon: Justice, is it Served?
Sarah Rosario: Balance and Symmetry
Tiffany Nguyen: What’s a Building?
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Thank you to the Bronx Yankee Fund for their support in this program. We also want to say a special thank you to the encouraging teachers at Manhattan Early College for Advertising, High School for Art and Design, Bronx High School for the Visual Arts, Manhattan Hunter Science High School, Dewitt Clinton High School, The Urban Assembly for Applied Math & Science and Promise Academy 2.
