Seeing Ourselves Successful
Seeing Ourselves Successful: The Worcester Youth Photovoice Project. (2009). New England Network. 20 pp.
Youth “photovoice” projects, in which young people learn basic photographic techniques and then go out into their communities to document what they think is interesting and important, have emerged as a powerful tool for personal growth and community change. Seeing Ourselves Successful: The Worcester Youth Photovoice Project, is the second photovoice project Youth Catalytics has coordinated since 2008. In it, a group of young people from Worcester, Mass., make observations, ask questions, deliver advice, and ponder the meaning of life, all through photographs of everyday scenes from their community.
