Youth Action Network: Photovoice
LIFT provided equipment and resources for youth to make POV videos during the city of Toronto’s Youth Week. The project was organized in collaboration with the Youth Action Network. The fifteen participants learned basic camera and editing skills, creating a digital video project for their Photovoice Program.
Photographs submitted by youth will be displayed in YAN’s office. The theme for this photo voice surrounds it self around dreams for the future. At YAN we strongly believe that youth have the power to change the future. Through this photo voice we will display pictures that capture youth’s hopes and dreams for the future.
Youth Action Network is dedicated to helping youth become more informed and actively involved in order to move towards a just and sustainable society. We strongly believe in the ability of youth to affect change in the world. We understand the need for a stronger voice and for greater participation in our local and global communities. The main functions of YAN are to provide information and promote action. YAN is a national non-profit youth organization based in Toronto.
