This training program is designed to create youth outreach workers by engaging, educating, and empowering each individual with harm reduction principles and tools to prevent the potential negative outcomes of chaotic substance use. The young adult population is continuing to see an increase in overdose and transmission of infectious diseases rate. Data has shown the positive impacts of increased engagement of peer-to-peer contact within the Adult Peer Support Programs. We are confident that by applying the same principles, we will see improvements in the engagement of our youth population.
