Looking After Our Mates is an interactive one-hour free education session for year 12 students delivered in schools throughout Victoria. The session focuses on responsible consumption of alcohol and strategies to avoid drink driving. It is delivered by a fully trained and accredited facilitator. The session explores a range of drink and drug driving road safety issues that are relevant to young people. Looking After Our Mates builds on the Fit 2 Drive Year 11 Workshop that our Year 11 students will be completing next week and together with Year 10 Keys Please Program helps to prepare young people to be safer road users.
The program has recently been redeveloped by VicRoads in consultation with Victoria Police, the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), Australian Drug Foundation and RoadSafe Gippsland. Looking After Our Mates is an initiative of the Victorian Community Road Safety Partnership Program – See more at: http://www.f2d.com.au/programs/year-12-looking-after-our-mates#sthash.PosQFUmo.dpuf
