Project Impact

1. Amplifying Youth Voices

The Photovoice Project provides students with a platform to express themselves through the powerful medium of photography. By capturing images that reflect their experiences, challenges, and aspirations, students have the opportunity to share their perspectives with the wider community, including local CBAC churches. Through their photographs, students can convey their thoughts, emotions, and concerns, allowing their voices to be heard and valued. More information, including the impact of photography, is highlighted at

2. Engagement Through Focus Groups

A crucial aspect of the Photovoice Project is the involvement of students in focus groups. These groups provide a space for participants to come together and discuss the submitted photos in depth. By engaging in thoughtful dialogue, students not only gain insights into each other’s perspectives but also contribute to the collective interpretation of the images. This collaborative process encourages empathy, critical thinking, and mutual understanding among participants, fostering a sense of community and solidarity.

3. Enhancing Intergenerational Understanding

By sharing their photographs and participating in focus groups, students play a vital role in helping CBAC churches understand the youth of today. Through their lens, churches gain valuable insights into the lives, experiences, and challenges faced by young people in their community. This firsthand perspective enables churches to tailor their outreach efforts, programs, and support services to better meet the needs of youth, ultimately strengthening the bond between generations and fostering a more inclusive and supportive community environment.

Exploring Spiritual Spaces Through Photovoice

Introduction to the CBACYF Photovoice Research Project

The CBACYF Photovoice Research Project employs a unique methodology that invites students (ages 14-18) to express their connection with God through the medium of photography. By responding to the evocative question, ‘Where do you meet God?’, participants are encouraged to capture moments and spaces that hold spiritual significance for them. This approach not only fosters personal reflection but also contributes to a collective exploration of faith within the community.

We recognize that teenagers often find spiritual meaning outside traditional religious institutions, in various settings such as nature, homes, pets, and friendships. As part of a research initiative within the CBAC Youth & Family department, the project aims to amplify the voices of young individuals in expressing their unique experiences of spirituality.
