Join us to view an exhibition of photography, referred to as Photovoice, that raises awareness about underage gambling. The exhibition was created by students from Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical High School with support from Prevention Services of High Point Treatment Center and funding from the Department of Public Health’s Office of Problem Gambling Services. Community members from across the region are encouraged to attend and engage with the students, all while enjoying light refreshments and learning about the many facets of gambling that impact our society. 

Photovoice utilizes a youthcentered, participatory approach to engage local youth to help prevent problem gambling. Through this process, students received education on social justice, advocacy, public speaking, and gambling. Students applied their newly gained knowledge to capture photographs within their community and engage in group reflection to create calls to action around underage gambling. The final outcomes of this project will be on display at the community exhibition with local artists in attendance to highlight their experience.

The two main goals of this state funded project were to prevent or reduce underage gambling and problem gambling among youth, as well as help youth develop and maintain the healthy lifestyle needed to ensure that they won’t develop problems with gambling.

*Parking at Oakes Ames Memorial Hall is available behind the building, directly across from the building in the parking spots along the fork of the road or next door at the Ames Free Library, 53 Main Street.
