Party Safe Education
Since 2004, Encounter Youth has been providing engaging Party Safe Education that aims to alert, inform and empower young people to bring about positive change towards safer, more meaningful celebration. We encourage young people to take away the key message to ‘look after yourself, look after your mates, it’s your choice,’ and to empower others in their friendship groups, school and community with this message.
Our Party Safe Education program is presented to high school aged students, parents, and teachers in order to provide a holistic approach to learning and education.
Our Party Safe Education program is unique, relevant and engaging. Our presenters also incorporate real stories and experiences from the young people we engage with in our community programs, including Schoolies Festival™ and our weekly street-engagement program on Hindley Street in the Adelaide CBD.
“The presenter was very professional and spoke very clearly. They explained information in detail and shared examples that students could relate to. They also made students feel comfortable to engage in the activities and discussions.” – Year 11 Leader, Eastern Fleurieu School 2016
Party Safe Education is a vital part of our holistic approach in providing direct relief of harm to young people facing challenging social situations. We’d also like to thank Flinders University for their support as the Principal Partner of our Party Safe Education program.
