Attention Teens! Get Community Service Hours for Youth Photovoice Project

Teens can get community service hours by getting involved in this fun photography project! Registration required!

Communities across the country are hearing from their youth by taking part in Photovoice!

Get community service hours by getting involved in this fun photography project! You don’t have to be a good photographer to join! PhotoVoice explores young people’s perceptions of underage drinking and youth drug use. Your photos will raise awareness about your concerns and create talking points for Putnam County! This project will take place during the 2012-2013 school year! Registration required and ethical guidelines apply!

This project is intended for student’s grade 8-12 or ages 13-18.



 1. Take a picture in your community (the “photo” part). ( A drawing is also acceptable)

2. Write a record or DESCRIPTION (less than 200 words) about your photo that answers one or more questions regarding challenges facing youth today! Your photos will be shared with parent groups, community organizations, and sent to our political leaders. (This is the “voice” part!)

Please register with Coalition Coordinator Elaine Santos at putnamdfcgrantee@gmail.com. Parental consent will also be required. Please visit and join us on Facebook by searching “Putnam County Communities That Care – NY” or on Twitter at http://twitter.com/#!/PutnamCTCNY or call 845-225-4646

This sounds like a fun project. How many years has it been running in Putnam?
