Since the very beginning, it has been our vision to equip as many kids worldwide as possible to learn their voices are important and that they can make a difference. Over the years, we have received hundreds of inquiries from passionate and talented photographers, teachers, and community leaders asking to bring 100cameras to a community of youth they care deeply about. Equipping these folks to bring our mission of empowering kids through photography to all corners of the world has always been a part of our core values, and we have been working hard to create something that gives life to this long-term vision.
Introducing our beta Snapshot Project Platform: A unique and custom-built model that equips passionate people to teach self-expression to kids worldwide. By bundling up the following, our Snapshot Project Platform kit puts the opportunity to teach and empower students directly into your hands.
- Our organization's 501c3 status
- Our custom-built curriculum that meets classroom educational standards
- A page hosted on our website to host and sell the kids' galleries
- The tools and resources you need for the equipment and curriculum
- Access to our qualified staff to receive training tips, tricks, and lessons learned from the field
Live, breathe, and thrive in leading a project in a community you are committed to.
We have four beta projects currently running in Turkey, Thailand, U.S., and Nepal, and we're thrilled to be introducing each project to you this spring. This summer, we will be opening up applications for our next round of Snapshot Projects to take place in the fall/winter. In 2017, we plan to open up our third application round and will continue to build our Snapshot Projects family -- ultimately reaching hundreds of communities across the world through the dedication and commitment of our Snapshot Project Leaders (SPL).
If you are interested in applying to become a SPL, please download our Snapshot Project Overview that shares our course description, objectives, materials needed, general qualifications for SPLs, and our criteria for approved partner organizations.
Once applications open up in summer, we will post a link on this page to download our complete Snapshot Project handbook. At that time, we ask that you thoroughly read through this and decide if you feel that becoming a SPL is a great fit for you and the organization you choose, and then we excitedly invite you to complete our online application.
