Do you have an interest in gaining knowledge and skills to more effectively engage youth in community level change efforts? Please join us for a training on How to Engage Youth Using Photovoice. During this training, participants will learn the fundamentals of the Photovoice process and how it can be used to engage young people in community change efforts. Photovoice is a process that empowers youth to identify (through pictures and videos) their community's strengths and concerns, brainstorm solutions to issues, and influence policymakers to make improvements. If you're looking for an effective way to engage and collaborate with young people to improve access to physical activity and healthy eating, this training is for you.
This training is part of youth engagement training series conducted by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation that has been made possible by funding from the Department of Health and Human Services: Communities Putting Prevention to Work (CPPW). CPPW is a joint project of the Cook County Department of Public Health and the Public Health Institute of Metropolitan Chicago. Each training will be in a "Train-the-Trainer" format so that you can take what you have learned to your various platforms and begin to engage youth at your organizations and schools.
