Training and Peer Education

All YAG members are inducted and receive training to become peer educators. Accordingly, all applicants need to be available for a one-day training.

The learned peer education skills are then put into practise throughout the year, as YAG members assist Youth Solutions in facilitating workshops with other young people.

The YAG meet once a month to help identify issues young people face and, with support from Youth Solutions’ staff, develop solutions and strategies to address these issues.

The YAG also assists Youth Solutions in implementing and promoting a health promotion campaign. The current campaign is the #whyichoose campaign.
