CWP's partner, Children of Promise, is an after-school program for kids who have incarcerated relatives. This ten-week after-school residency, under the guidance of Teaching Artist Pamella Allen, guided the kids through the process of telling their stories visually. They worked with the camera individually and collaboratively to create a "photo essay", which focused on portraiture, self-portraiture and still life photography. The students' photo portfolios were sent to their parents.

Children of Promise, NYC (CPNYC) is a community based, non-profit organization, in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, whose mission is to embrace the children of incarcerated parents and empower them to break the cycle of intergenerational involvement in the criminal justice system. CPNYC offers an innovative and unique after-school program specifically designed to meet the needs, interests and concerns of children left behind by parents serving time in prison.
