Asking for Change: A Photovoice Project
This study aims to partner with young people experiencing homelessness to document challenges and strengths in their community through photography and then advocate for social change.
This youth participatory action research (YPAR) study involves a series of projects in which young people choose a topic, research it through photography, dialogue about the issues raised and advocate for social change. Qualitative data come from recordings of group photo dialogues, post-project interviews and observation field notes. Photography is used to exemplify themes documented by youth.
