Kids in Focus is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to empowering at-risk youth to reach their potential using photography to ignite their imagination and build their sense of confidence. Tapping into the power and universal language of photography, Kids in Focus enables children to gain a new perspective on themselves and their environment. The kids’ eyes open to their potential for creativity and success by learning new ways of connecting with others and the world.
Kids in Focus is dedicated to giving youth the chance to see themselves and the world in a new light, equipping them with essential life skills to make the shift from surviving to thriving.
When kids experience adverse circumstances, they disconnect from the world and themselves. With the right guidance and encouragement, a camera can help switch the light in their eyes back on. Through the restorative power of photography and with the guidance of dedicated mentors, Kids in Focus opens the eyes of youth to their potential as they build the resilience needed to overcome challenges.
