Partnership for Girls: Picture This! Photovoice

Abstract

"This record includes materials of the Picture This! Photovoice project, an important component of the needs assessment for the PA Partnership for Girls study. Included are (1)a leader’s manual, (2) participant workbook; (3) handouts, (4) session table; (5) consent form, (6) project presentation; and (7) a list of relevant publications.

Photovoice blends a grassroots approach to photography and social action. It provides cameras not to health specialists, policy makers or professionals, but to people who do not usually have a say in decisions affecting their lives: youth. Picture This! involves putting cameras in the hands of girls ages 11‐14 to find out about physical activity opportunities and constraints for girls in Westside neighborhoods. Girls will take photos to answer these questions: (1) What helps girls your age be active? (2) What keeps girls your age from being active?"
