Educating the public on the different issues that young people are facing, and the challenges that are within the neighborhoods of Toronto is a must. By using the medium of Photography, the goals are two-fold; to promote pride and self-awareness amongst participants, as well as to create public awareness about the impact these experiences have had on and in the lives of these youth, including access to meaningful employment and establishing life goals. We created a Awareness & Impact Campaign that will give young people the chance to tell their personal stories of the effect of stereotypes they have each experienced within and out of there community.
This component is dedicated to support our young people if they have an interest in modeling or learning photography. They will also gain support if they want to produce an exhibit of their own. They will work closer with our photographers in producing different galleries. Our main photographer Emily Hill, will be running this project.
