Nevada95 will be hosting a quarterly PhotoVoice series. PhotoVoice projects allow youth to engage with their surroundings and identify and draw attention to an issue using photos. PhotoVoice projects engage youth who often do not feel like they have an opportunity to have a say in the decision-making process on key areas that affect their everyday lives. PhotoVoice allows them to look deeper into causes, solutions, etc. of an issue and allows them to use their perspectives to tell a story. It allows youth an opportunity to express their thoughts and perspectives in a way word might not easily do, they are able to “speak” through the photos. PhotoVoice provides a powerful opportunity for the community to connect to youth and the issues they are trying to address. Each PhotoVoice project will last a total of 6 weeks for participants from beginning to end.
Nevada Youth (ages 14-24) are invited to highlight specific issues affecting them and their peers. Participants will submit a series of photos and participate in weekly check-ins with the Nevada95 team, followed by community conversation to share thoughts and brainstorm ideas.

Vaccine Outreach and Education Survey!
We want to hear from YOU!
As we work to strengthen public health efforts in our state, especially with and on behalf of the young people who we serve, this survey will be extremely helpful in learning how youth feel about the vaccine, what concerns they may have, and much more.
Youth have the power to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and we want to learn how to effectively communicate with youth and the best outlets to help share accurate information!
