Mountain Youth Peer Support Program

Consultation has concluded

The Blue Mountains Local Drug Action Team (LDAT) has received funding to develop a peer education program by young people, for young people.

The program aims to build young people’s knowledge, capacity and resilience when faced with issues of risky drinking and drug use.

We are looking to recruit 12 young people to co-design the program with the support of Council, MYST and Platform Services.

We are looking for young people aged 12 – 18 years old who are:

  • Motivated and confident
  • Enjoy working as part of a team
  • Creative thinkers
  • Enjoy helping others, and
  • Keen to participate and able to commit to project requirements

Note: Participants should have no history of substance abuse.

Commitment:

  • A two-day workshop (3 and 4 April, 2019) to learn, develop and design the program
  • Ability to commit time after the program development (until September 2019) to deliver the program. Depending on what is developed, this could be online or face-to-face (e.g. at events or schools). A commitment of at least 1 event and/or online delivery is required.

If you are interested in participating in this program or would like to know more please contact Kristy Lenon – Community Development Officer: Young People on (02) 4780 5680 or klenon@bmcc.nsw.gov.au.
