Young Changemakers with a Camera: Photovoice  Online Course
Facilitator: Stephanie Lloyd, MA.
 

An activist youth activity for ages 10-15
6 online sessions, 1 hour each

Young Changemakers with a Camera: Photovoice is a community activism activity for youth ages 10-15 that uses a hands-on, participatory approach. In this activity, youth are directed to take photographs of things that matter to them, and share them with peers, family members, and decision makers. The activity will build and strengthen participant skills in research, photography, critical thinking, writing, marketing, and activism. Youth will work together and independently to learn about the Photovoice process, take photographs, write captions, and prepare for a presentation.

 

The main goals of this activity are to:

  • Increase the potential for youth to be activists and leaders in their communities throughout their lives;

  • Experience the power of collective action to spur change;

  • Build appreciation for different points of view;

  • Develop writing, speaking, problem-solving, and organizational skills;

  • Create a product showcasing youth photographs and captions for wider sharing;

  • Encourage action to support community resources and address community challenges.


The sessions will be hosted online though Zoom meetings. For each session, each youth will need:

  • Access to a computer with internet and a camera

  • Access to borrow a digital camera (cell phone or iPad is ok) with the ability to email or upload photos to Dropbox;

  • A quiet space for participation in Zoom meeting sessions;

  • Excitement about photos, community activism, or learning something new;

  • Interest in sharing their point of view (self-expression) and learning from others.
