Cool projects that help young people learn photography and use their voices and talents:

AjA Project: Multimedia projects involving youth in areas of violent conflict or social upheaval. One exhibit, Lives in Transition: Expressions of Refugee Youth, is coming to National Geographic Explorer’s Hall in D.C. next week.

Literacy Through Photography: Curriculum that gives students a chance to photograph their daily lives and use the finished photos as inspiration for writing about their experiences. The organization where I work is helping put this curriculum into D.C. classrooms, so I spent today coaching kids on writing poems to go with their photos.
