Title

Responsible Partying

Subtitle Do you know how to party?
Abstract

The project is a creative youth participation project designed to inform, educate and encourage young people concerning the societal impacts of their behaviour in organising or attending parties.

By educating young people about the potential legal consequences for them individually, including criminal charges, the project will increase young people’s skills in positive decision making.

In YAC's experience of working with young people for over 30 years, education is a valuable tool in supporting young people to have positive police interactions. If young people understand their obligations and responsibilities when ‘partying’ as well as the extent of police powers, then they are less likely to both engage in unlawful behaviour and come into conflict with police endeavouring to exercise their powers.

The project directly informed and educated those young people who participated in the workshops and the workshop discussions were used to develop targeted and accessible resources which are available to all young people throughout Queensland.
