“this has taught me so much…

…from editing skills to client work to how to get a job. The biggest lesson I learned, though, is how big of an impact a photo can make. A single photo essay can tell the stories of thousands and fight for racial justice, and a photo used for street art can start a feminist revolution… Honestly, I’m not sure what I see myself doing after college and high school. No matter what I’m doing, though, I know I will take everything I learned from GR with me, which is so much.”




Nope! You could have just landed here from Mars. If you’re high school- or college-aged and you want to help make this world a little better with a few local teammates, Circles is the place for you!

No! Circles is open to the whole world of eligible young visionaries.

Your local Circle must have a minimum of 3 members total (i.e., including you). From our experience, the sweet spot is 7–10 members, but you can totally go big, honey!

Nope, we accept applications on a rolling basis. It’s always the right time to change the world!

All Circle members meet up with the program lead approx. once a month via videoconferencing. After that, individual Circles can collaboratively work on their pieces as often as they want/need til they’re done.

Absolutely not. In fact, we’ll give you a bunch of stuff to get started (e.g., stickers, zine ideas, connections to our awesome lineup of staff, guest artists/mentors, board members, etc.)!

We’ll reach out to all new members by email with next steps, so check your inbox! THANK YOU FOR APPLYING!!
