FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Feb. 7, 2014 - PRLog -- Cameras For Kids Foundation, HANDY and the Guardian ad Litem Program received a $1,000 in donation from the VOICES for Children of Broward County to start a photography enrichment class for vulnerable youth participating in the HANDY Program, who are also a part of the GAL Program.

The signing of the partnership agreement took place in December 2013 and all 10 available slots are already filled. This will be a great experience for these young adults to see the world through a different lens.  This will be an eight (8) week commitment for these students who will get an opportunity to display their work in an upcoming   Photography Showcase in April. We are excited to start this program and to watch these students explore their art in photography.

Cameras For Kids Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides at-risk teens with a camera and teaches basic concepts of art and photography while fostering self-esteem, self-confidence and offering a skill set.  The CFKF program is in many major cities across the US and Canada.

HANDY’s mission is to embrace, educate, and empower vulnerable youth to become engaged, productive adults. Founded in 1985, HANDY has met the needs of more than 45,000 Broward County children and youth in foster and relative/non-relative care under protective supervision.
