We deliver programs that provides young people with current, fact based information about alcohol and other drugs. Our team of paramedics, who work at the coal face of drug related harm discuss the potential consequences of drug use and explore strategies to minimise harm.
Our sessions look at the factors that influence teenager’s decisions and focus on positive social norms.
Our objective is to build young people’s capacity to make safer, healthier decisions while they enjoy growing independence.
“Knowledge gives young people the power to make informed decisions.”
The Drug Education Project utilizes a number of strategies to engage with young people, including videos, games, evaluating risk in scenarios, sharing of experiences and there is always time to answer individual questions.
To consolidate the learning from our seminars we also provide a number of follow up classroom activities. Through these activities students and their classroom teachers have the opportunity to discuss and explore, content covered in our sessions, safety at parties and events, and harm minimisation strategies.
Research shows that young people who remain connected to their families and communities are less likely to experience problems with drugs. To ensure our harm minimisation message is shared with the wider community we also provide parent information sessions with helpful tips and strategies to aid communities to support their young people with their safer, healthier decisions.
