This program was aimed at engaging young people in the years immediately before and after leaving school and had a preventative focus to equip young people to make sensible choices as they become more exposed to gambling.
Early intervention was provided through education, awareness and support from parents, teachers, carers and role models to encourage young people to make informed choices about gambling and to be aware of support services if they were to develop issues with their gambling.
The program was delivered through videos, Facebook and email, supported by lesson plans, workshops and seminars delivered at TAFE, Universities and to school counsellors.
A Talking with Teens about Gambling Video Series was also developed to encourage young people to make informed decisions about gambling. Topics covered tipping and the odds of gambling. You can access each of the videos by clicking the links below.
