Yoav Rubin (Parent) — TikTok camp

Our kids went to VISST’s TikTok camp and they loved it. Mike and Shaun are fantastic instructors who put in the time and effort to make sure every new topic one come learn is digestible. Highly recommend!

Grade 7 Student (Camper) — I learned a lot

I learned a lot. Before, I knew nothing about social media platforms, but now, I do. This program really helped me understand socials media platforms. I realized that not only students, but everyone should learn about this because we are in the technology age and we should learn how to protect ourselves from hackers. Otherwise, we will lose our identity.
