THE STORY:

Nycsalt, Inc. wrote -

NYC SALT Photography Program has the chance to win $15,000 if we receive the most donations of all the HIVE organziations in the Mozilla Hive Challenge before Monday, November 3rd at 11:59am.

NYC SALT is a 501(c)3 non-profit whose mission is to use digital photography to engage, inspire and empower youth from under-served communities in New York City to reach their full potential. The program uses professional photography instruction combined with college preparation and mentoring to instill in participants the life-skills and confidence to pursue higher educational and career goals. At the same time, students develop exceptional photography skills and award-winning portfolios that increase their competitiveness in the college application process, and unlock opportunities for employment while in college.

We have 3 awesome programs:

  • Young Artist in Residents Portfolio Program: 16 high school students, 366 hours of photography training and college prep. $7000/student 
  • 12-week Smartphone Workshops: 90 high school and middle students learning to compose pictures, edit and publish responsibly and thoughtfully on Instagram using whatever camera is in their pocket. $250/student
  • Summer Camp: 60 middle school students and a one week digital photography intensive program. $250/student

NYC SALT students have won over 104 Scholastic Art Awards for their photographs in the past four years.

100% of NYC SALT students have been accepted to college.

86% of NYC SALT students are the first in their families to go to college.

85% go to 4-year colleges, 15% to 2-year colleges.
