Would you like your fifth/6th class child or sec­ondary school stu­dent to take part in a pro­gramme which in­forms young peo­ple on al­co­hol harms and to pro­vide them with skills to make in­formed de­ci­sions around same?

Two sep­a­rate pro­grammes for these age groups will run in the Round­wood start­ing in early May. The ses­sions will be fa­cil­i­tated by a fully qual­i­fied pro­fes­sional youth worker with many years’ ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing with young peo­ple. The par­tic­i­pants will be cer­ti­fied for com­ple­tion of the pro­gramme which would run for a six-week pe­riod for roughly one hour per week.

The fo­cus of the pro­gramme is to high­light the dan­gers of al­co­hol mis­use. How­ever the work­shops will be fun and based on themes that can be ap­plied to all the chal­lenges a young per­son may en­counter. The themes in­clude right and wrong, al­co­hol, healthy choices, as­sertive­ness build­ing, peer pres­sure and self-es­teem, men­tal and phys­i­cal
