Kids in Focus pairs professional photographers with children ages 10-14 who come from backgrounds of poverty, homelessness, neglect or abuse. Each kid is given a camera and, working with a mentor, they find a positive way to deal with the demons of their lives and gain self-worth. The program culminates with an exhibition open to the public as well as a hardbound book. We want to hear from the kids how this program opens their eyes and their hearts to something new and helps them find their authentic selves. We also will find out from the mentors the challenges of forming a bond with the kids and how the camera acts as a conversation starter and a safe space to share feelings that are often too difficult to talk about.
