The Through My Eyes exhibit will showcase personal photographs that the youth have taken over the past 12 months at various events and venues throughout the Johnstown community under the mentoring, guidance, and direction of the Greater Johnstown Camera Club.

Through this partnership, Goodwill Industries is introducing youth to photography as a hobby, possible career choice, and form of self-expression. This mentoring experience is designed to help youth find their “voice,” identity, and creativity and gain confidence.

The GoodGuides program and the Greater Johnstown Camera Club are also presenting photography mentoring activities to camera club students at the Greater Johnstown Alternative School and ACRP St. Michael’s School. Photographs that they have taken since October 2013 will also be part of the photo exhibit.
