SAFE Series

The SAFE Series includes a range of health education presentations which aim to have a positive impact on young people

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:

  • Party SAFE: Generally delivered with assistance from Peer Educator, focuses on developing knowledge and skills in young people to reduce drug and alcohol-related harm and increase safe partying behaviours.
  • Drive SAFE: Youth Solutions uses adapted versions of its SAFE Series presentations to deliver the drug and alcohol education components of Camden’s Drive 2 Stay Alive program, Campbelltown’s U Turn The Wheel to Stay Alive and the U Turn the Wheel programs in Camden, Wollondilly and Wingecarribee.

The SAFE series workshops can be delivered via face-to-face group sessions, or online group sessions.

Project impact

The SAFE Series has a great impact on its participants. As part of our commitment to quality improvement and delivering programs that are outcomes-focused, Youth Solutions prioritises strong project evaluation, including data collection surveys from project participants.
