Northern youth have something important to say about alcohol and drugs—and how they’re affecting their communities. Over the last two years, youth in communities all the way from Inuvik to Fort Smith created My Voice, My Choice videos.
Some of the videos were part of workshops that got youth talking about what's important to them and how they want to live. Others were hip-hop videos made by youth with the help of northern recording artist “Godson.” All of these videos talked about choices and the opportunity for youth to use their voices to make healthy ones.
The results were awesome.
Some videos will make you laugh out loud. Others will make you shudder. There’s some tight beats in there too!
