The SAFE Series includes a range of health education presentations, which are delivered to groups of young people, generally 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 young people’s 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 also uses adapted versions of its SAFE Series presentations to deliver the drug and alcohol education components of Camden’s Drive 2 Stay Alive program and U Turn the Wheel programs in Camden, Wollondilly and Wingecarribee.
- Quit SAFE cessation program: Youth Solutions is piloting the Quit SAFE cessation program – a series of workshops aimed at helping participants to start their journey to quit smoking. For more information about Quit SAFE cessation program, contact Youth Solutions on 02 4628 2319.
