EXPOSE: Photography

10 youth in the SBL program took part in a photovoice project in partnership with the Provincial Advocate for Children and Youth (OPACY) and the Art Gallery of York University (AGYU).  The project was developed through a youth-led, train-the-trainer, participatory action research model that gave youth the power to use a camera to speak about their school and community, and to develop photography and media literacy skills that they could teach other youth.
