#Adulting
As this unique time in their life approaches, we continue to encourage young people to make great choices and look after themselves and their mates. This seminar will discuss the transition into adulthood and all the new social and legal responsibilities that entails. We look further into what it means to be an active bystander, what to look out for on a night out, how to respond to drink spiking and safe transport. On top of this, we encourage young people that even at eighteen many Australians are still choosing not to drink.
Safety at Schoolies
It’s the complete end of year celebration guide! This seminar continues to encourage young people in making great choices and to look after themselves and their mates as they celebrate the end of their schooling. As this unique time in their life approaches, Year 12s are able to identify the key warning signs to assist a person affected by alcohol and/or other drugs, whilst debunking the myths to sobering up. Whether students are celebrating at Schoolies FestivalTM or out of town, Encounter Youth informs them about what the law says and suggests what to pack, where to stay and how to get there safely. All this straight from the people who oversee Australia’s safest schoolies celebration: Schoolies FestivalTM, Victor Harbor.
Alert Not Alarmed

With a focus on safety when celebrating, this seminar looks at what makes someone more vulnerable and what responsibilities one can take charge of to keep themselves and their mates safe. The discussion of party fights, relationships and getting home from a party seeks to alert, inform and empower young people to own the choices and responsibilities they have and to encourage young people in the development of their social responsibility within the community.

Who's Calling Your Shots?

The stats, the facts, the risks. This seminar provides the opportunity for young people to consider their own expectations and beliefs around drinking choices and compare these to the choices of young people Australia-wide. Through a range of interactive activities, young people are able to process the realities of alcohol use and its part in their lives, as well as the role of peer pressure, community and cultural influences. Young people are informed with the latest research on alcohol use and adolescent brain development with brief consideration to illicit drug use and how they can assist a person affected by alcohol and/or other drugs.

Know Your Limits

In a time when developing an identity is everything, we encourage young people to be part of the majority who make positive choices when socialising and celebrating with their mates. We begin a conversation about why young people are generally riskier beings, the positive and negative risky situations they may face (e.g. peer pressure, underage drinking, drug use) and discuss key strategies to prevent or deal with those situations.

Regard the Risks
Students are hands on with different types of drug packaging (alcohol, energy drinks, analgesics, other prescribed medication and cigarettes) as we explore the positive and negative health effects as well as the short and long-term consequences of drug use. We educate about how to responsibly use legal and prescribed medications, the dangers of drug misuse, and discuss the dangers of illicit drugs. We uncover the positive choices young people are making in relation to drug use and encourage young people to continue to improve the statistics. Students leave empowered and equipped with the knowledge to educate their friends, family and communities. They will also be informed about a range of resources to support them in their adolescent journey.
* a maximum of 30 students per 50 minute seminar
Parents' Guide

Encounter Youth facilitates an interactive discussion between parents, grandparents and guardians about considerations when hosting a party. Together we compare plans for a 13th versus a 16th or 18th and provide key hints and tips of how to protect your young person, their mates and your home. A key aspect of the seminar is discussing alcohol as part of young people’s celebrations and the legal information to know as a supervisor. We encourage parents, grandparents and guardians with conversation starters about parties and alcohol with their young person.
