Youth Solutions

Youth Solutions is a youth drug and alcohol prevention and health promotion charity working with young people 12 – 25 years of age and the broader community.

Youth Solutions works across the Macarthur and Wingecarribee regions of NSW, delivering health education programs, drug and alcohol education, campaigns, support services and activities aimed at reducing and preventing our community’s young people from experiencing the harms of drugs and alcohol.

We work to educate and empower young people, to inch closer to our vision of a community of healthy, safe and connected young people. Our drug, alcohol and wellbeing strategies focus on learning, participation and support.

Why we need your help...

It truly takes a community to keep our young people healthy, safe and connected and prevented from the harms of drugs and alcohol. Your support is the key.

Research shows that alcohol and drug use remain among the leading causes of death and disease for young people.

“Sometimes you don’t know what you are doing and you end up doing this very harmful thing to yourself. I had no better idea. You want to know how you can stay safe and not harm yourself.” - Youth Solutions research participant, 23

We believe educating and supporting our young people is the key to preventing and reducing the harms our young people are facing because of drugs and alcohol.

Our programs achieve results. They help provide the education, support, connections and skills needed for young people to to be safe, healthy and prevented from harm.

The Macarthur and Wingecarribee regions of NSW are growing populations, with a significant proportion of young people. There is growing demand for Youth Solutions' programs and services within these growing communities and beyond.

Your tax deductible donation will help us to provide the programs, campaigns and services needed to support our young people.

Your donation makes a huge impact. Together we can make a difference.

“People understand through knowledge. Teaching young people what alcohol does, the effects of it and what it can lead to… For me knowledge has been crucial, you have to know about something whether you do it or not, that’s your call.” - Youth Solutions research participant, 23
