Engaging young people with photography (with cameras)

Image is illustrative. By Monica Gozalo on Unsplash.

This activity plan gives step-by-step instructions on how youth workers can teach young people to explore photography, create their own images, and contribute to the development of social and political sensibilities within the community in which the images are made. The high visual literacy that many young people already possess can be easily transferred to examining and/or creating photographs around a particular interest, theme, or social issue.
