    Event description

    Are you a youth worker on the Great South Coast who wants to help young people understand Victoria’s new affirmative consent legislation?

    Yeah, Nah is a peer-led, affirmative consent education workshop run by YACVic Rural’s Southern Mallee team, funded by the Victorian Government.

    Yeah, Nah’s focus is on making sure young people know that true affirmative consent is given in the moment, not hours before.

    What to expect

    You’ll get equipped with knowledge on how to speak to young people about affirmative consent and staying safe in their relationships, as well as a clearer understanding of the new legislation.

    • The Yeah, Nah project outline and how the workshops can support young people to practice safe and healthy relationships.
