Programs

For the second year, Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson (BGCT) connected fifteen (15) of its Club members, who have navigated adversity and struggles in their young lives, with the national program Pictures of Hope, made possible through a generous grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

All of the amazing and heartfelt Pictures of Hope photographs are on exhibition at the Tucson Museum of Art through July 8.

Through photography children share their innermost feelings. The opportunity to reveal their dreams in photographs shows each child how much their dreams MATTER!

Their hopes and dreams captured in quiet moments tell a story that few adults can imagine. “When you show children that you care about what they dream for in life, perhaps a child who never felt he or she had self worth, now will,” says Linda Solomon.

Linda presented a virtual photography tutorial to youth Club members. At the conclusion of the tutorial, the children were surprised with digital cameras donated by Walgreens and given their first photo assignment as young photojournalists. Each child has a Picture of Hope card showcasing one of their photographs.

Pictures of Hope has helped children in 50 cities, cities with the highest populations of homeless children and youth.
