WE NEED YOUR HELP! We have just applied for a $100,000 grant to implement a yearlong photography program in several Boys & Girls Clubs in Los Angeles. The grant is called My LA2050 Grants Challenge and it is meant for non-profits with projects that will help make a better LA, now and in the future. We’re listed under the “Create” category. (* See below for explanation of our current involvement with Boys & Girls Clubs.)
WE NEED YOUR VOTE! If you haven’t already voted, we really need your vote! We are in 10th place, but must be in the top 10 for a chance to win the $100,000 grant. Think about all the kids that we can affect! Photography CAN change lives.
Our proposal outlines a yearlong photography program in LA’s Boys & Girls Clubs. The grant is meant for non-profits with projects that will help create a better LA, now and in the future.

Los Angeles Center of Photography Brings Life Changing Photography Classes to Boys & Girls Clubs
Thank you so much!

* ?I designed and set up a yearlong photography curriculum for the Variety Boys & Girls Club in Boyle Heights and began teaching on Jan. 14, 2015. We have completed the basic, portraiture and street shooting class so far. The documentary class begins this week. The plan is for each Boys & Girls Club to document their own community and exhibit the work at LACP. Our first exhibit ? from the Variety Boys & Girls Club ? will take place in early 2016.? The image above was taken on the streets by Aubrie Cortez, one of the Variety Boys & Girls Club students in Boyle Heights. There are 26 clubs in LA County. We hope to implement our program in all of them, once we raise enough money.
