Youthsafe's long history is embedded in the programs it runs in schools and for other community groups.

As the Spinesafe Awareness & Prevention Program, Youthsafe organised sessions run by wheelchair presenters who spoke about spinal cord injury prevention through their own personal experience of injury. The program has now evolved into a suite of dynamic, facilitated, sessions based on research and best practice that support NSW PDHPE Curriculum and Pastoral Care programs.

Our work in road safety, workplace safety and sport and recreation safety supplement the costs of these sessions, allowing us to offer them at a rate affordable to schools and community groups.

Youthsafe offers engaging and interactive, small group sessions (40-60 mins). All sessions are ideal for class-sized groups, and are facilitated by Youthsafe presenters with extensive knowledge about young people and injury prevention education.
