7B Drug Free, a coalition for substance abuse and prevention, is offering a couple of free seminars to help spread their message of hope and inspiration.

A free Youth Photography Seminar led by acclaimed photographer Monte Stiles will be offered Thursday, July 28. The seminar is for youth aged 12-18 years old. It includes a brief photography workshop, a sack lunch, an afternoon of photographing wildlife at Round Lake State Park and a photography contest. Kids should bring snacks, a water bottle, appropriate weather gear and a camera (camera phone is fine).

The seminar starts at 12 p.m. at the University of Idaho extension office, 4205 N. Boyer Ave., and ends at 5:30 p.m. Youth must be picked up at that time.

Space is limited. To reserve a spot, call Erika McCall at (208) 699-0919 or email [email protected]

Friday, July 29, a free stakeholder seminar called “Community Health and Resiliency for Community Leaders” will take place from 7:30-9 a.m. at the Ponderay Events Center, 401 Bonner Mall Way.

This interactive presentation will be led by nationally recognized motivational speaker Monte Stiles, who will address the importance of health and resiliency in the community. There will be a light breakfast provided.

Stiles has inspired countless audiences in the U.S. and abroad through his multi-media presentations. By combining almost three decades of experience as a federal drug prosecutor with a passion for wildlife and outdoor photography, Stiles will provide valuable insights about everything that is wonderful about life—a world full of amazing people, beautiful landscapes, fascinating creatures and boundless opportunities. The end result is a powerful and unique message of hope, inspiration, community and resiliency.
