"I would like to extend my gratitude for yesterday's workshop, it was so informative and enabled us to gain a better understanding and insight to what it feels like for young adults and their experiences. We had great fun learning and it was great to have someone so open to ask questions without judgement, it was very obvious to us how passionate you feel about working with young adults. We all felt very inspired and motivated with our decision to work with people in the community." (Workforce development - Gippsland)

"I certainly will be keen to book your organisation again." (Secondary School - Melbourne)
"YSAS was probably one of the best drug and alcohol presentations I've been a part of. I believe Melissa was my speaker. Just like the sex ed class, Melissa spoke to us like we were adults and recognised that we're allowed to make these decisions for ourselves now. Where as in previous presentations it sounds like they're telling us not get involved with alcohol or drugs at all which is pretty ridiculous because it's around everywhere. We were told to be careful with our decisions and how to avoid bad situations, by having a sober friend, having a way home, not mixing drugs ect." (Year 12 student - Melbourne)
