"In the Graphic Ad workshop, I was able to learn the basics of lighting, angles, and how to use Photoshop and Lightroom. I also learned more about the effects of drugs and its effects on people, especially teens. I am glad to have had the opportunity to join and learn the workings and different approaches to a graphic ad." (Youth participant, Nikki)

"I’ve attended two programs so far and they are the Halloween party and the Graphic Ad workshop. Both were very friendly and fun. The Halloween party was inviting and friendly. Everyone there was very kind and supportive of each other. The Graphic Ad workshop was interesting and the people were nice and flexible with our time." (Youth participant, Vy)
