Encounter Youth always aims to provide relevant, research-based, up-to-date information and services to young people. How do we achieve this? One of the most important ways to find out is by asking the young people what they want from Alcohol & Other Drug Education.
Young people desire:
…drug education that was perceived to be balanced, ‘real’ and non-judgmental, with programs delivered by ‘outsiders’ (not teachers or those in positions of authority).” 1
We come alongside and support a school’s drug education program. When our seminars are a part of a wider program, it makes both your school’s program and our presentations more effective and more likely to promote lasting change in your school community.
If you have any questions, please get in touch.
Support for regional and disadvantaged schools
From 2018 to 2020, Encounter Youth are partnering with Variety – the Children’s Charity to offer our program to regional schools in SA without the usual travel fee. This will make alcohol and other drug (AOD) education more accessible for regional school communities in SA.
Variety SA’s support also increases the accessibility of our program for disadvantaged schools through a subsidy of the seminar cost. This is aimed at encouraging schools with disadvantaged students to take a holistic approach to AOD education.
