Voices of Youth 2000 was a ten-month internship offering training for youth in northeastern Nevada in photography, audio recording and writing.  A photography coach and oral historian trained and worked alongside eight teenagers providing them with tools to create an artful documentation of their communities and cultural heritage.   This web site contains photographs and audio vignettes resulting from their work together.   The program spawned similar programs in California and Utah.
