We have been following the work of 100cameras closely over the last few years and have always been big fans of how they champion the unique voices and perspectives of youth around the world. Their programs are designed to equip and empower youth to process and share their own stories through photography, and with our modified school schedule this year (shorter and fewer school days), we thought it was the perfect opportunity to host a program of our own with some of our Abundant Life students!
The program is made up of 8 different lessons that cover various photography skillsets, concepts, and techniques, along with prompts and exercises to help student’s engage their hearts and minds in their work as well. We kicked off our 100camerasxROH program in early July with 10 of our students, facilitated by our amazing Art Teacher Jonatan Moncada, Accounting and Finance Professor Juan Charles Lopez, and our Executive Director Katie Slaughter.
