images of Good

  • images for Good (or “ifG”) is a local nonprofit that mentors students and veterans in photography so that they can capture meaningful stories of social change and community organizing. The volunteers gain photography skills that they use to attend service events with ifG.

The social cause receives high-quality images of their great work, and ifG gains community capacity to amplify their collective impact.
  • Volunteer Information: There are many ways you can make a difference in our community as you grow your skills, capabilities, and network and broaden your perspectives – all the same time!  Your unique perspectives, skills, and contributions can help our grassroots startup movement and social impact 501c3 make an even bigger difference to students and programs across the VA-DC-MD area.  And while images ARE important, what we do is far greater than the photography or video tools we use to grow students and serve social causes.  We accelerate programs and amplify voices addressing community challenges like homelessness, racial inequity, gun violence, healthcare insecurity, and Veterans’ issues.  We close opportunity gaps one by one – image by image, story by story – for Students, for Programs, and our Community.We tell stories that lead to change…and invite you to be a part of these efforts!  Here are some key ways to help:
    • Marketing & Communication – We are visual storytellers that drive change in people and programs!  Come help us create content, convey information, and impact audiences.  From brochure design to media engagement to social media posts to infographics to helping craft focused & engaging outreach tools, we can find a way to meet your goals and play to your strengths. Great for those interested in Marketing, Journalism, Communications, Graphic Arts.
    • Photography & Video – You can assist us as we give voices to those who need services like ours the most but can afford it the least.  Help programs with your skills (using your equipment or ours) alongside one of our professional mentors – as well as explore if providing basic instruction to other students (at the High School and University levels) works for you!  Anyone can serve, regardless of your experience level with these tools.
    • Community Outreach – Help us meet our Sustainability, Capacity, and Capability growth targets – all to develop more students and serve more community programs!  Anyone can help us with grants, media engagement, scheduling, and recruiting & developing volunteers. Business and program management / HR skills are all very helpful.  And if you know a foreign language, we could use your help in making our outreach materials as inclusive and diverse as the community we are serving and helping build.Timelines and expectations can vary by project, and we will strive to craft an arrangement that works for everyone.  Given that we drive transformation via relationships and skill development and cultivating leadership over time, images for Good is a great match for those who recognize that commitment and passion matters.  Come and see what we can create together!
