Mission Statement

Our mission is to create understanding, identify common experiences, and help build lasting relationships among our youth providing them with new tools to employ as they make the transition into adulthood. We envision that they will utilize these tools and experiences in order to express themselves more effectively, find common ground with others, and ultimately use these skills to manage conflict and create a more peaceful, cooperative society.

Description

  • Teach young people traditional and modern photography techniques; affording them the opportunity to express themselves creatively while exploring their lives through the lens of the camera and the printed word.
  • Allow youth to explore their cultural and experiential similarities between themselves and other young people through the exchange of their art; focusing on personal expression and utilizing various mediums of communication.
  • Create an atmosphere in which our students can celebrate cultural differences and origins; widening their worldview, having their voices be heard and realizing their ideas and opinions matter.
  • Engage communities through public exhibitions, online galleries and publications using these media to raise awareness and funds for scholarships and vocational training opportunities.
