Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
Youth Solutions has been working on several major projects this year to achieve our aims.Due to a significant amount of interest for our project team to run workshops in schools around drugs and alcohol, the Drug, Alcohol and Resilience Education (DARE) project has been designed to address a range of issues including peer pressure, mental health and communication breakdown by building resilience in the workshop participants, with an aim to minimise drug and alcohol related harm. This year, the project has reached over 250 young people in 9 secondary schools.Our Peer Enrichment and Empowerment Project (PEEP) acknowledges the importance of peer education when it comes to communicating messages to young people. PEEP has successfully engaged and trained 14 passionate young people to become peer educators, who have in turn facilitated 11 peer education workshops, engaging over 240 young people.#whyichoose is a campaign created as part of the PEEP project. With tobacco identified as a major concern among young people, the campaign is targeted at young people aged 16-25 years and aims to get young people thinking about why they are choosing to smoke and start the conversation.ARTucation is a creative-arts based project which engages young Aboriginal people aged 12-16 years to address issues including binge drinking, alcohol related harm and safe decision making. This year, Youth Solutions conducted workshops in 5 secondary schools, engaging over 50 young people.A
