YMCA Power Scholars

Photography Program for At-Risk Youth

Power Scholars Academy is a partnership between the Y and the national nonprofit BELL (Building Educated Leaders for Life), a program designed to foster physical and social-emotional growth with at-risk youth.

We created a photography curriculum designed to give YMCA Power Scholar instructors a resource to teach kids photography, inspire creative expression, provide a platform for children to share their stories and promote personal development.

Our scholars learned more than we could have anticipated with these engaging, interactive, and fun lessons. I appreciate Greg and Jannelle’s motivation to make a positive impact.
