Why be a YIF Student
As you can probably guess, most teens come to YIF for one thing — photography! And after their first class, most of them tell us that they got photography and something even better: a community of new friends, a place where they feel like they belong, and a home away from home. Take a moment and see our current students’ work in the student gallery.
Whether you’re just starting out and are curious about photography, or whether you already know that you totally love it, there’s a place for you at YIF. If you want to meet new people who will share your passion for photography, definitely send us an application today. And if you’re an adult who knows of a teen who could benefit from our program, send them our way!
