Vision: In a world shaped by imagery visual literacy becomes critical to understand the world we live in. Capturing Belief uses visual storytelling to shatter stereotypes, dismantle biases, and create a sense of universal belonging for young people of color.
Mission: Through photography and creative writing, Capturing Belief inspires young minds to embrace their natural curiosity and embark on a journey of self-discovery. These tools teach critical thinking and enable them to add perspective to the narratives of who they are as young people of color in America.
Our approach is one of collaboration with people and community organizations who recognize the critical role mentoring plays in uplifting young people. A key component of this, is working with local artists who share their unique and valuable talents with our students, and by honouring them with a living wage.
