• “I learned not to ignore the world around me but to go out and experience it.”

  • “I’m not afraid anymore to try new things. I’m more hopeful about my future.”

  • “I learned who I really am, that we are all special in our own ways.”

  • “It made me feel really proud, like I can accomplish a lot more.”

A New Lens on Life

When kids experience trauma, they disconnect from the world and from themselves. A camera in their hands, with the right guidance and encouragement, can switch the light in their eyes back on, giving them a new lens on life.

Kids in Focus is dedicated to empowering and equipping at-risk youth to shift from surviving to thriving. Through the restorative power of photography and with the guidance of dedicated mentors, the kids are inspired to open their eyes to their own potential and self-worth.
