Chicago Lighthouse’s Apple-supported “Photography for All” program sees visually-impaired participants provided with an iPad Air, Magic Keyboard, and Apple Pencil.
“Photography for All” is a part of the city’s One Summer Chicago youth employment program. Apple says that it provides people aged 14 to 24 with job opportunities, internships, and training at organizations across Chicago. As well as specific job training, the program sets out to give young low-vision and blind people much-needed personal skills.”Confidence and self-esteem are hard — or I thought would be hard — to zoom in and teach,” Lisa Davis, former director of One Summer Chicago who created the Photography for All idea, told Apple. “But this program helped them open up and expose their confidence. It takes away the idea that they can’t do this.”
