As we continue to research and develop Incorrigibles, we invite you to reach out to us if you have information related to the New York State Training School. We are also investigating other youth facilities for girls in the US from the early 1900s to the present. We are gathering these materials for an in-depth web platform. Below you’ll find a video that includes some of the rich media and storytelling elements that will be layered with contextual data and research.
We are also developing a DIY toolkit so that formerly incarcerated women, community members, historians, and/or students can document the institutions in their own state or city. Using our website platform and the toolkit, the stories and histories of young women’s facilities throughout the US can be aggregated into a central hub.
