Program Director
Youth in Focus
          Kate Lynn Porter (Morrill was her maiden name while at MICA) contacted us recently, and this is what she’s been up to
          since she graduated from MICA…
2006 – 2011: Taught photography at Towson High School (Photo 1 through AP)
2011 – 2013: Founding Assistant Principal of Baltimore Design School
2013 – current: Program Director at Youth in Focus in Seattle.  (youthinfocus.org)
“Youth in Focus – Our mission is to empower urban youth, through photography, to experience their world in new ways and to make positive choices for their lives.  We put cameras in the hands of at-risk youth and place them in a challenging environment surrounded by high quality talented teachers, nurturing adult mentors, and create a strong community of support. Through photography our students find their voice, identity, creativity, and gain new confidence in their worth and abilities.
Additionally, since 2008 I’ve been leading Habitat for Humanity International teams each year to build homes in a variety of countries in need, and documenting the people, culture, and experience through photography.  (Guatemala, El Salvador, Zambia, Romania, Cambodia)”.
