National Geographic photographers and editors travel the globe, not only on assignments, but also to teach their unique craft of storytelling to young people worldwide.  Check out this new video highlighting their experience working with diverse communities:  young refugees from Jordan to post-Katrina New Orleans; kids on the Pine Ridge Native American Reservation in South Dakota; children of migrant workers in Homestead, Florida…..

The theme that unites this program is a desire to understand the youth perspective on stories of importance to us all, through the camera’s lens in the hands of a teenager.  Young photographers, who might otherwise not have a chance to tell their story, are given a voice through National Geographic Photo Camp.
