The theme for National Youth Week this year is ‘Our Voice. Our Impact’ and we want to know the impact friends have on decisions around sex and relationships.
We want to hear stories where your words, or your friends, have impacted in the following areas:
Young people (12-25) from all over Australia are invited to submit their stories to be selected by YEAH and the National Youth Sexual Health Council for promotion throughout National Youth Week. From the five best entries, one story will be featured on the resource section redaware.org.au each day of NYW.
Each piece will be a first-person account about a time when a peer’s voice (words) impacted on your knowledge and understanding of, or behaviour around, sexual health. Alternatively, the entry can be how your voice impacted someone.
Regardless of how independent, or immune to peer pressure we think we are, our words have an impact on our friend’s behaviour. In the angsty, awkward, exciting and fun world of youth sex and sexuality, this is especially true. So get sharing!
