Our Seminars

KNOW YOUR LIMITS – Year 9

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.

WHO’S CALLING YOUR SHOTS – Year 10

Whos Calling Your Shots Party Safe Education SeminarThe 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.

ALERT NOT ALARMED – Year 11

Alert Not Alarmed Party Safe Education SeminarWith 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.

Adulting Party Safe Education SeminarAs this unique time in their life approaches, we continue to encourage young people to make great choices and look after themselves and their mates.

On top of this we encourage young people that even at eighteen some Australians are still choosing not to drink.
