Hundreds of children are spending part of the summer learning some import life skills.

The "M.E.LT. Bus" is traveling around Palm Beach County. 

It stands for Mobile Entrepreneurship Leadership and Training. 

It's a converted Palm Tran bus and a dream Palm Beach County business owner Annette Gray said it took four years to come to fruition.

Today, children ages 10 to 15 are learning the dangers of drug abuse.

"They're watching a particular video about the truth about drug abuse and some of the ramifications of that," Gray said, 

"They're showing the family, they're showing your lives, making better choices with friends and not falling into peer pressure," Gray added. 

The children took notes and made presentations. 

Gray said the goal is to reach 200 children throughout Palm Beach County this summer.

She said the Melt Bus helps children and adults throughout the community with a wide range of programs.
