Photobook Report – Smoking Sucks: For-Youth-By-Youth Trainer Training Program
This album was produced from the work of youth who took part in the For-Youth-By-Youth Trainer Training Program for tobacco reduction in Nunavut in 2010. The youth wanted this album to remind them about what they learned in the workshops and to encourage them to keep up their efforts to spread the word among their families, friends and peers about quitting or not starting to smoke.
