Victorian School Seminars

Our Encounter Youth Education seminar package is designed to complement the implementation of the Australian Curriculum and accounts for different young people’s stages of development. We are committed to supporting and enhancing your school’s existing alcohol and other drug education and pastoral care programs.

Our school seminar package is fee-for-service and consists of several seminars for year levels 10-12, as well as for parents. Our program is designed to strengthen students’ knowledge each successive year and build an effective relationship with students, parents and staff. This holistic approach maximises the effectiveness and value of our program.

Encounter Youth Education is committed to best-practice alcohol & other drug education. As part of this commitment, we do not present one-off seminars to students. Our whole-of-school approach involves students, parents and teachers. This helps the whole school community to be on the same page and have a common language to facilitate conversations about alcohol & other drugs.

Our seminar package may be tailored to suit the needs of the young people, parents and staff at your school. Contact us today to discuss how we can best support your community!
