PATERSON, NJ - The Paterson Youth Photography Project (PYPP) will hold its annual reception to launch its latest exhibit of children’s photography on Wednesday, May 22,  at the Paterson Museum, 2 Market Street, Paterson. There is no charge for this event, and all are welcome to attend.

The purpose of the Paterson Youth Photography Project is to enrich the lives of school age children in Paterson by introducing them to photography as a means for self-expression and an opportunity for personal growth. Children ages 8-15 meet in a computer lab at Passaic County Community College on Saturday mornings during the school year to learn digital photography. The dedicated photography teachers are all volunteers. Interested parents should review PYPP’s website at www.pypp.org and contact info@pypp.org for registration information.

PYPP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It was founded eleven years ago, is a highly regarded program, welcomes donations, and actively encourages others to replicate its work with children in Paterson and elsewhere.
