One project in the east is trying to give kids a voice through photography. It's called Photo Voice.
The United Way of Pitt County and Building Hope Community Life Center are collaborating to bring this unique opportunity to Pitt County youth.
Photo Voice allows students to use photography as a tool for communication, self-expression and advocacy.
This year, the Through Our Eyes exhibit will feature photography, paintings and poetry done by local youth.
The exhibit will circulate throughout Pitt County starting with Third Street Community Center on April 17 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. It is free and open to the public.
