Youth in Focus from Eric Pokorny on Vimeo.


Youth in Focus’ mission is to empower urban youth, through photography, to experience their world in new ways and to make positive choices for their lives.

We put cameras in the hands of low income, at-risk youth and place them in a challenging environment surrounded by high quality talented teachers, nurturing adult volunteer mentors, and create a strong community of support.

Through photography our students find their voice, identity, creativity, and gain new confidence in their worth and abilities.
