New Staff & Board

We've still got good news rolling in! Not only have we given our website and branding a new look, but we've also grown our team! We are excited to introduce our new folks, who will continue to uplift our mission of equipping youth to share their ideas and values with the world through photography and art.

Meet our new Administrative & Development Coordinator!

Hi! I’m Eliza, a Photographer with a background in Administration from San Diego, CA and I’m beyond excited to be a part of Youth In Focus. I believe these creative thinkers are the next generation of leaders and I am honored to participate in their journeys. I hope they create to inspire and challenge the world around them.I enjoy my music on vinyl, my candy sour and gummy, my feet in Converse, and my days full of laughter and good times.

Let’s represent!

Meet our new Board of Directors!

We are thrilled to welcome four new Board Members to the team!

Ainsley TeGrotenhuis, Big House Consulting
Fadhilah Lee, Amazon
Leslie Wellott, Frame & Reference Inc.
Steve Hill, Retired HR Professional

Over the last few years, we've been working hard to make sure the Board of Directors not only better reflects the youth we engage but can help us amplify our efforts and better connect us with the communities we serve. The Board ensures we are making progress on our strategic plan and that racial equity and social justice guide our work in all aspects. As we strive to create a lasting impact through our work, it matters that the majority of our Board Members identify as BIPOC and that 69% share similar lived experiences with our students.
