The programs take place with assistance from a Peer Educator as part of our Peer Enrichment and Empowerment Project.
A Peer Educator is a trained youth volunteer, a member of the Youth Solutions Youth Advisory Group, who assists Youth Solutions to deliver seminars to their peers, making the content and activities more relatable to young people.
Each presentation in the SAFE Series aims to improve participants’ knowledge and skills relating to the particular topic area:
The SAFE series workshops can be delivered via face-to-face group sessions, or online group sessions.
