Summer is arguably the best time of the year. The warmer months signal holidays, end-of-year and Christmas celebrations and an opportunity to party and wind down before study and work ramp up again in the new year.
As the end of year celebrations approach, the team at Youth Solutions is sharing the latest tips and trends for a memorable summer via its latest campaign, Trending Now.
The goal is to make safer celebrating the norm, to support young people to enjoy their summer safely and reduce alcohol related harm.
Targeting young people aged 18 to 25 years in Macarthur and Wingecarribee Shire, the Trending Now: Summer Celebrations campaign aims to provide practical tips, including sharing messages from Youth Solutions’ volunteers.
“If young people remember even just one of our simple, safer celebrating tips when they’re out and about this summer, then our campaign has been a success,” says Youth Solutions’ community relations and communications coordinator Amanda Dillon (pictured), who is heading up the campaign.
“We’re aiming to make safer celebrating the norm by sharing practical things young people can do to reduce their risk of harm and increase their chances of safe and great celebration.
“We’re also keen to remind young people about the importance of reaching out for help and support.”
Youth Solutions chief executive officer Geraldine Dean said the health charity was determined to promote practical strategies to keep young people in the community safe over summer.
“We are committed to helping young people keep themselves and their friends safe while they celebrate,” Mrs Dean said.
“This campaign runs alongside our various health promotion programs and plays a role in helping us to achieve some of our broader goals at Youth Solutions, including increasing health literacy around alcohol and safer celebrating, as a means of reducing harm.”
