About the Program
Every year, Beyond Influence hosts a summer photography project for middle school aged youth in the Greater Nashua Public Health Region (GNPHR) to promote positive behaviors. This project, known as PhotoVoice, is a program used worldwide that allows individuals to explore important topics within a community and express themselves through photography by breaking past communication barriers that often prevent them from expressing their concerns.
PhotoVoice has been used in Nashua for several years by the Nashua Police Athletic League (PAL) and its youth members. With support from the City of Nashua Division of Public Health and Community Services (DPHCS), PhotoVoice has expanded throughout the GNPHR to include the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Nashua, the Boys and Girls Club of Souhegan Valley, and Nashua 21st Century. We hope to continue expanding the program within the GNPHR in the coming years.
