iSpeak2

Photovoice is a process by which people capture and record their life and cultural experiences through photography and stories. The goal of the iSpeak2 project was to describe how teens view relationships and violence using the photovoice process.  The pilot of the iSpeak2 project was conducted in Jackson County during the summer with girls, ages 13 to 18, as participants. The girls were tasked with taking photos that would visually depict their ideas about healthy and unhealthy relationships and the dynamics in between. To enable the participants to do this, they were provided with a free camera, training in photography techniques with emphasis on documentary photography, attended education sessions on healthy relationships, took pictures in their community, discussed their photos, practiced leadership skills, and brainstormed creative ways to deliver their messages about healthy relationships. The photographs and stories were then presented at several community venues and discussed and displayed at the STEP Launch/Kick-off event in all of the three Promise Neighborhood communities.
