Full program fee
Gold Partner subsidy
The Safety at Schoolies seminar may be delivered as a ‘stand-alone’ session in addition to the full program on any given year of the partnership, at a 50% discount (e.g. the discounted fee in 2019 will be $300 + GST). This provision is only available for the Safety at Schoolies seminar and does not apply to any other seminars in the program.
4. Incident Response
Gold Partner Schools have access to one free incident response consultation each year, if required. This consultation is normally priced at $1,500 + GST. This is a safety-net option should it be required. If there’s no incident related to alcohol & other drugs, there’s no need for a consultation. However, our Gold Partner Schools enjoy the peace of mind that if an incident does occur, they have a team of trained professionals to call on.
5. Gold Partner Resources
Encounter Youth will develop and provide resources to Gold Partner Schools from Term 1, 2019. These resources will be designed to be used by classroom or homegroup teachers in follow-up lessons after Encounter Youth’s presentations.
