PHOTOVOICE – Through The Eyes of Youth

Photovoice is a process in which people – usually those with limited power due to poverty, language barriers, race, class, ethnicity, gender, culture, or other circumstances – use video and/or photo images to capture aspects of their environment and experiences and share them with others. The pictures can then be used, usually with captions composed by the photographers, to bring the realities of the photographers’ lives home to the public and policy makers and to spur change.

During Spring 2019, students from Boonville Middle School and Boonville High School worked with WCC's Youth Involvement Committee and identified areas of their environment where they feel safe and unsafe.  This project was presented at the 2019 I CARE Award Breakfast. The posters will also be displayed in other places of business within Boonville.  Future Photovoice projects will focus on other communities within Warrick County.
