We offer youth development photography classes in both digital photography and traditional black and white darkroom photography.
We provide participants with the instruction, resources, and equipment they need to share their unique and personal stories through photography.
Our supportive and inclusive community provides a sense of belonging and safety for youth from a variety of backgrounds, fostering positive connections between underserved youth and adult teachers and mentors while providing individualized attention and support.

“I LOVE THE YOUTH IN FOCUS COMMUNITY! They are always willing to help and want you to be here. They all greet you in a respectful manner—it just feels like you’re with family. Every staff member knows everyone’s name, and they’re always waving at you! I like how they actually take the time to get to know you, and the story behind you.”
