SHAW-UP or Student Health and Wellbeing Ambassador Program is a new leadership program that is being coordinated by the NIHRACS Health and Wellbeing team, The NI Central School and other members of our Local Drug Action Team (LDAT). Funding for this program is being provided by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation.
This program will start in March 2022 and will offer up to 20 students from years 7 – 11 the opportunity to learn more about various areas regarding health and wellbeing for young people, with an emphasis on preventing harms from alcohol and other drugs.
The program will consist of a launch event followed by six sessions on a range of topics of relevance to young people. These will be conducted by visiting and on-island experts. There will be a final “graduation” session where participants will present on their projects and prizes and awards will be presented.
