Youth Leadership St. Lucie used a community-based participatory action research method entitled "Photo Voice" to address issues they identified in their communities.  Through their personal and peer lenses, the youth took photos that they felt best illustrated their concerns and wrote powerful captions to accentuate and expand upon the message captured through their photos. 
Please enjoy the excerpts above of Youth Leadership St. Lucie's powerful "Photo Voice" projects.  
If you would like to display a full exhibit of photos and captions at your place of business, please contact Kevin Singletary at KSingletary@RoundtableSLC.org or Kim Reid at KReid@RoundtableSLC.org.
Our children today face so many obstacles. The Roundtable of St. Lucie County is the only entity that brings together executive level community leaders – from the school system, law enforcement, government, social service agencies and more – to address these obstacles and make a real, lasting difference in the lives of St. Lucie County children. Established in 1995, the Roundtable is committed to addressing key risk factors that lead to delinquency, crime and other problem behaviors in children, and strengthening assets to implement initiatives that support children’s success. The Roundtable operates through “Networks” (or subcommittees) that research specific problem areas and identify best practice solutions. Roundtable members collaborate to assess, plan and implement evidence-based and data-driven strategies intended to improve outcomes for youth.
