Alcohol & Other Drugs


Encounter Youth offers a research-based, up-to-date and holistic alcohol & other drug school program designed to equip young people, parents and teachers. Our Encounter Youth Education program is customised by state.

For information tailored to your location, please select your state.

Our School Program’s Core Features


Our school education program is designed to be delivered to students each successive year through high school, each seminar building on the knowledge from the previous year. This assists in building relationships and credibility with students and supports schools in providing a consistent, whole-of-school approach to alcohol & other drug education.


We take a positive approach in our alcohol & other drug school program. Using the latest research, we provide students with factual information that focuses on the growing number of students who are choosing not to drink alcohol or take other drugs. From this basis, we address the realities that some students choose to drink at risky levels or engage with drugs, and we discuss strategies to reduce harm and to look after a mate if a night doesn’t go according to plan.


Our educational school program is highly interactive, providing structured activities where students are encouraged to express their questions, thoughts and opinions. This allows our presenters to provide students with credible and practical information around alcohol and other drugs during each education seminar.


Our school program has been mapped to the Australian Curriculum and is delivered by trained education professionals to ensure its alignment and consistency with the school curriculum. We are committed to supporting and enhancing your school’s existing education and pastoral care programs.


Our educational program can be tailored to cater for specific situations or the needs of the young people, parents and staff at your school.  Contact us today to discuss how we can best support your community.
