PhotoVoice & Social Action Project will be an engaging photography and storytelling summer program. Teens will have an opportunity to document their lives as students and community members through their choice of words and images which they will collect throughout the summer program.
The idea is to find out how the community in which they lives helps and hinders their health (for this purpose, health is defined as “a state of complete physical, mental, and emotional well-being").
By the end of the program, these teens will present their perceptions and impressions of the conditions that affect the area in which they live through their photos and words.
The overall goal will be to expose the health of their community at local events in order to incite social change and action within Multnomah and Clackamas County.
