- OUR PROGRAMS -

Las Fotos Project’s staunch belief in art's power to transform not only the individual, but also society as a whole forms the foundation of our work.

A self-exploration program that practices therapeutic photography to support students with finding their voice while building self-confidence and self-efficacy.

Utilizing photojournalism as a tool for youth leadership, students learn to raise awareness about social issues and health disparities in their community through storytelling and social media.

 Creative Entrepreneurship Opportunities is our social enterprise and apprenticeship program which provides teen girls with valuable entrepreneurial skills for future careers in the creative industry.

Esta Soy Yo: I AM HoME

On view June 19, 2021

Like many of us have experienced over the past year, our students have begun to look at what self-health has meant to them and where they gain their strength and stability. For some students that took the form of family and friends and for others it manifested in their immediate surroundings and the places they were able to move through.
