Hi there! Campbell Erickson here. 

I am writing from Three Dot Dash, where AYM is representing one of the top 30 youth run organizations in the world. Through this experience, we have learned about peace. Our world view has been changed drastically. 

A Youth Mind is unique because we do something different. We believe in sustainable development starting at the grassroots. A Youth Mind is a movement. 

Through the basic art of photography, we are discovering something new in the world of youth and story. We are, quite literally, capturing a piece of the world that would go unseen. We would be missing a key element of the human story. AYM is happy to announce that we will be beginning to release photos from our projects in Colombia and Kenya in coming weeks, and we will be receiving our project in South Sudan around March 25th. AYM is also exploring multiple partnerships and photography initiatives in different countries, as well as finalizing a program for exploring, researching, and innovating on problems addressing youth, worldwide. 


As a sneak peak, check out this awesome photo from Colombia (name not yet released):
