"Personally I gained a deeper understanding of the root causes of gang violence and how it affects our communities. These workshops helped me recognise the importance of communication, empathy and proactive solutions.

"The Young people, including myself, also benefited by learning about the consequences of gang involvement and the positive solutions in place to address these issues. These workshops not only empowered me but also helped to instil a sense of responsibility we all have to actively contribute to creating a safe environment for everyone”

Montell Neufville Managing director of Att10ive said “The students in both schools were really engaged, they learned a whole range of terms that will stay with them now and in the future.
