    We had a peer pressure work shop which 19 young people attended, they learned about relationships, drugs/alcohol, how to feel confident in not getting involved in something that you do not want to do. We have done a Mental Health Workshop which 10 young people attended and said it was very interesting, they enjoyed learning about how broad mental health issues can be from depression to Schizophrenia. We then had a Gang Violence and Crime Awareness Workshop which 16 young people attended, this was very informative and encouraged them to pursue their dreams and goal and not to be lead astray by the thought of quick and easy money that most times leads to crime and often prison.
