    The global success of Project Lives led NYC to ask Seeing for Ourselves to conduct a similar program for New Yorkers on probation.

    And so we embedded ourselves at the New York City Department of Probation in January 2018. 

    At first, only one or two brave souls would turn up for a class.

    But word of mouth spread.

    By 2021, courses became over-subscribed the first day they were announced.  The waiting list for entry totaled two hundred.  The program was so successful it became institutionalized as a permanent offering of the agency.

    The film arising from the program, In a Whole New Way, toured the festival circuit from 2021 to 2023. Honored at 200 festivals around the world, it amassed over 60 awards.

    The companion book was published June 20, 2023.
