Teaching Artist Opportunities

Youth in Focus

Youth in Focus’ mission is to empower youth, through photography, to experience their world in new ways and to make positive choices for their lives. We believe all students should have equitable access to high-quality arts education to develop their creative potential and the 21st-century skills they need to become confident leaders who can successfully navigate the world around them. For 25 years, we have provided youth with the instruction, resources, and equipment they need to share their unique and personal stories through photography.

As we look to our future, Youth in Focus is committed to serving even more students furthest from education justice through valuable arts education. We are looking to add someone to the team who is excited to be a part of our mission and growth!
