It's Lit Linkup began as a very simple concept of interactive games and group discussion between young people and young adults. It's an opportunity for these two groups of people to gather together, to reason with one another and an opportunity to pass on knowledge that could save their life.
With real talking, relatable, down to earth discussion facilitators (no presentations or workbooks allowed) its a chance for them to share their story, respond to questions and get the youth thinking about their own lives and the next steps into their future.
