YoDAA and the Centre for Youth AOD Practice Development invite you to participate in the 3rd annual:

Australian Youth AOD Conference

August 17 and 18, 2017

Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre

This year’s theme is “Identity”. We will explore how young people develop their identity, how these identities can change and grow, and how youth workers can have a positive influence on this process.

We’re inviting foster carers, kinship carers and related case managers to a Free Half-Day Forum. Participants will learn about building resources for young people to reduce the risk of problematic substance use, why young people use drugs, how they are using them and how to reduce harms while engaging in constructive conversations about drug use.

Training dates available:

Sunshine

Visy Cares Hub, 80b Harvester Road

Monday, 1st May - Day Session: 10am - 1pm

Monday, 8th May - Evening Session: 5:30pm - 8:30pm
