About VisionWorkshops

About VisionWorkshops

VisionWorkshops is the creative force behind a series of highly effective photography workshops for youth from underserved communities worldwide.

Our mission is to provide innovative, dynamic, educational and life changing experiences for youth, using the tools of photojournalism.

Our goals are to give young people a voice, challenging them to see themselves and their communities in a new light; to encourage them to explore their world through the lens of a camera; and to share their perspectives with others through the publication and exhibition of their work.

VisionWorkshops provides programs free of charge to our students, through generous donations from the community, foundations, and corporate sponsors. Our workshops inspire youth with positive role models and with opportunities to display their photographs and writings at galleries from Annapolis to Europe to India and the Middle East.

Our Vision

  • VisionWorkshops is a vibrant community for self-expression, self-respect, respect for others and connection across cultural boundaries on the journey toward adulthood.
  • We link youth from around the world in local and online communities in which they seek to better understand and appreciate themselves and others.
  • We are catalysts of hope, inspiration, and expression for youth who need encouragement.
  • We see the results of our efforts contributing to a more peaceful and tolerant world.
