Youth volunteers who are involved in the Youth Solutions’ Youth Advisory Group take part in the Peer Education Training Program to become Peer Educators.
A Youth Solutions’ Peer Educator is a knowledgeable, skilled and confident youth volunteer who works alongside Youth Solutions staff to deliver drug and alcohol harm prevention and health promotion presentations to their peers, making the content more relatable to young people.
“Youth Solutions is such a great organisation that have an amazing team behind them, working to educate young teens on ways to celebrate safely. This is an experience I will always take with me and I will definitely recommend it to anyone.” – Tumama, YAG 2019
Our Peer Educators are mainly involved in the delivery of the SAFE Series presentations – Drive SAFE and Party SAFE. Peer Educators are also heavily involved in the development and the implementation of the annual peer led #whyichoose campaign and the annual Safer Celebrations Campaign.
