Project S.N.A.P. is a non-profit organization dedicated to empowering people of all ages to communicate about issues that are important to them, collaborate around a common goal and develop the skills and insights necessary to become socially responsible leaders promoting positive change in their communities.
We bring thousands of people together in communities across the country through our unique programs. We leverage the power of individual voices combining to form a collective voice. To us, the individual voice can be expressed in many ways including art, written messages, and film. The collective voice is expressed through giant mosaic murals created from the individual voices. These mosaic murals, put on public display in communities and in our Online Art Museum, become a legacy for generations.
Whether you’re an organization, a community, a school, city, or state, our programs will highlight your unique character and important milestones, increase loyalty, enhance donor relations and fundraising efforts, and attract media attention. With a profound impact on every participant, our programs strengthen relationships and create new opportunities for community partnerships and initiatives.

Our Core Values
People often ask us what S.N.A.P. stands for in Project S.N.A.P. — our core values are so
important to us that we included them in our name: Share, Nurture, Act, Preserve.
These values are woven into everything we do at Project S.N.A.P. We are a collaborative team that shares new ideas and perspectives with each other and with our partners. We nurture those ideas and take action to achieve our mission. Every artwork and every message that is submitted to us represents a unique voice, and we work diligently to be sure that we preserve that individual voice in our archives and in our Online Art Museum. Here is how our core values are expressed through our programs:
People of all ages learn about important issues, causes, or initiatives that have an impact on their lives, and share their thoughts and ideas.
These ideas are nurtured and solutions are developed throughout the community in classrooms, meetings, conferences, and public events led by Project S.N.A.P. program ambassadors, teachers, parents, community, business, and organizational leaders.
Participants take action to express their own unique perspective on a specific issue or theme first by creating an artwork about what they learned, next by writing an artist’s statement about what they created, and then by helping to lead the way to solving these community based challenges.
A mosaic mural is created from all the artworks that were created in a cohesive themed image that represents the collaboration of thousands of people, leaving a legacy about what can be accomplished when people take action together in their community.
