ALCOHOL & OTHER DRUG EDUCATION
Encounter Youth has been providing our alcohol & other drug education program to students, parents and teachers since 2000. We are the largest provider of school alcohol & other drug education to South Australian secondary students, educating over 22,000 young people, parents and teachers last year.
We aim to alert, inform, and empower young people to bring about safer, more meaningful celebration. We adopt a harm minimisation approach and encourage students to ‘look after themselves and their mates’. Our program aims to reduce and prevent alcohol and other drug-related harm among young people.
Our Alcohol & Other Drug education program is available in both in-person and online formats.
Our new Teacher Resource Room is now live!
This fantastic resource provides teachers and communities with effective tools, information and resources to support young people to make positive choices around alcohol and other drugs.
