donate to youth in focus

support youth voices

Youth in Focus works with youth who face challenging lives, struggling on a daily basis with a combination of racial or ethnic discrimination, poverty, and/or homophobia. Your contribution goes straight to work reaching underserved youth in Seattle at a critical time in their lives, putting cameras in their hands and placing them in a supportive environment to learn photography skills, find their voice, and tell their stories.

your support helps us keep our programs open to all youth, regardless of ability to pay. Over 25 years, Youth in Focus has served over 4,200 youth in our youth development photography program. thank you!


Our sliding scale covers only a small portion of the cost to run the program, with most youth on full scholarship. Making this program happen requires the support of our community—individuals, foundations, businesses, and government entities.
