PARTY SAFE EDUCATION™
Preparing Young People & Parents for ‘Rite of Passage’ Events
Encounter Youth’s Party Safe Education™ seminars help South Australian young people and their parents to be prepared for key events in the school calendar. School formals, associated after-parties and end-of-school celebrations like Schoolies Festival™ are often viewed as a ‘rite of passage’ into adulthood. Within Australian culture, these celebrations are often associated with drinking and this association can increase the risks for the young people who are involved.
Why Choose Party Safe Education™
Party Safe Education™ provides interactive, research-based, up-to-date seminars that discuss key events on the end-of-school calendar, as well as alcohol and other drugs. Our program equips young people to look after themselves and their mates as they celebrate and aims to provide schools with an evidence-based program that support and complements their existing education.
Staying safe at a party is, by nature, a practical skill. This is why our Party Safe Education™ presenters not only provide information but also the practicalities of how to use that information to stay safe. We incorporate real stories and experiences from the young people we engage with in our community programs, including Schoolies Festival™ and our Hindley Street program in the Adelaide CBD. Along with the topic material, students will be provided with links to high-quality information and support providers who can assist them in seeking further help if required.
