Photography is not only a field for professionals, but amateurs as well. For some children, taking pictures may grow into a desire to enter the industry in the future. Youth programs can help encourage education and learning in these specific areas.
Recently, the Boys and Girls Club in Sheboygan County, Wisconsin, received a grant to help teach children about photography. The Alliant Energy Foundation granted $2,000 to the club, according to the Sheboygan Press. The group plans to use the money to purchase two new digital SLR cameras, a video camera and software.
Leaders of the club hope that the grant will help educate children and give them the skills they need to pursue their interests in photography. The program is dedicated to helping members promote their artistic expression.
The Alliant Energy Foundation has given $30 million to a variety of similar projects since its establishment in 1998. The Boys and Girls Club in Sheboygan County has more than 1,600 members who meet at five different locations in the region.
