In a Nutshell

Donations fund digital cameras for photography workshops for underserved youth

The Fine Print

100% of donations go directly to First Exposure. Donations are automatically applied. Must provide full name at checkout. See Grassroots FAQs that apply to this campaign. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

The Issue: Youth Without Access to Art Supplies

The arts provide an invaluable outlet for youth in terms of self-expression as well as the discovery and development of talents and abilities. Yet access to the arts can be prohibitively expensive for young people who live in underserved communities or low-income households. The cost of supplies and equipment sometimes makes participating in these activities impossible for such youth.

The Campaign: Funding Cameras for Photography Workshops

If 50 people donate $10 to this Grassroots campaign, then First Exposures can fund five new digital point-and-shoot cameras for its youth programs and community outreach. Each additional $10 raised will go toward covering other costs associated with the community-outreach program. The cameras will be used by youth to complete an art project under the guidance of professional photographers.

First Exposures

First Exposures pairs underserved youth with professional photographers to provide young people with positive mentors and a creative outlet. Every week, youth and mentors meet in classes at RayKo Photo Center and SF Camerawork to work on digital and film photography. Students learn techniques related to capturing images, developing film, and editing so they can complete their own art projects. Mentors and youth also travel to local galleries, museums, and parks around the city to find fresh sources of inspiration.
