Focus on Youth
Focus on Youth helps keep disadvantaged youth engaged with their education by providing free photography classes and mentoring. We’ve put cameras in the hands of hundreds of low-income teens in the Portland area for the past eight years.
We provide a supportive place of learning and artistic expression, while fostering a sense of belonging and self-worth in the at-risk young people we serve. This past year, 100% of Focus on Youth students stayed in school and on track to graduation.
