Sub-district Mayor Mai Chaiyanit opened the July 18 “Develop skills, immunity & a better life” seminar with 70 kids from Sawangboriboon Wittaya, Wat Boonsamphan, Nernplabwan, Wat Tungklom and Wat Sutthawat schools.

Jirapat Junnawat of the Bangkok Child Protection Center spoke about how youths can lead an honest life, focus their attention on their schoolwork and be part of a drug-free community.

Activities simulated how youths put themselves in risky situations by getting involved in internet gaming, befriending the wrong type of people and not realizing when people are trying to exploit them.
