I need help raising money to start a free after school photography program for Edmonton's at risk youth. Hosted by the Tegler Centre, we can provide a safe place to encourage, inspire and uplift these kids while providing a hot meal and lots of love!

 

My name is Brittany Santos, I am a professional photographer based out of Edmonton Alberta. My passion for photography has provided me with an incredible career, amazing creative opportunities and an ongoing source of personal fulfillment. Now I have the chance to use it give back to my community give the kids at the Tegler Centre the same opportunities!

The Tegler Youth Centre is a youth drop-in shelter located in North East Edmonton reaching out to at risk youth in the inner city neighborhoods.  They provide a safe space for youth to spend time as well as invest in caring mentoring relationships with the youth who attend. Along with recreational and educational programming they provide snacks and supper every night. For many kids this hearty meal is the highlight as it is only real nourishment for some that day.

 Together with the Tegler centre I am passionate about youth understanding their God-given value and purpose in life. One of the avenues we use to enter into these conversations is through providing activities and clubs where youth can try new things, build confidence and develop skills in their areas of passion. Photography is an area that we have seen an increased interest among our youth in the past couple of years.

 Photography can be a powerful tool providing youth with the opportunity to express themselves creatively, develop their gifts and talents and to pursue goals in skill development and career exploration. It is also an opportunity to invest in youth and enter into conversations about self-worth, identity and purpose!

 

We’ve run two photography clubs in the past two years but have been limited by our lack of cameras. The Tegler Centre owns one Digital SLR camera but have found it challenging running programs with one camera for all the youth to share.

 My goal is to raise funds or donations for:

  • 5 Digital SLR cameras (Canon preferred)
  • A photo editing software program
  • Printing photos, purchasing frames & supplies to put on a Photo Showcase where our youth can present and display their finished work for families and members of the community.

I know with the help of my friend’s family and community we can make this happen for these kids! Please help me by sharing this, contributing funds or just providing prayer for me and Tegler staff.

Thank you,

Brittany
