Youth in Focus is an afterschool program that uses intensive photography training as a tool to help disadvantaged teens develop personal voice, positive identity, social skills and artistic skills. We offer free, multi-level classes for teens ages 13-19 in both film and digital photography. Classes are taught by professional teaching artists and supported by volunteer adult mentors. In this way we create a community of support around our students that both encourages and challenges them on their journey to a positive adulthood.
Our small class sizes, instruction from professional teaching artists, support from adult volunteer mentors, custom-designed curriculum, purpose-built space — and dedication to respecting, supporting, and challenging young people — all work together to create a powerful experience for our students.
