My Photo

The My Photo is a program which uses participatory photography to help youth gain a voice as they record, express and reflect on their experiences and the conditions of their community, Columbia Heights in Washington DC. The My Photo, My Voice project was created as part of the Youth in Action training program at the Latin American Youth Center with the support of the DC Addiction Prevention and Recovery Administration
