Past projects for young people
Expect Respect! used drama-based education to explore the legal and social implications of sexual assault and the use of mobile phones to take and share sexually explicit images of young people. From May 2010 until March 2012, more than 4000 young people in Adelaide and regional centres across South Australia participated in this interactive legal education program. Key to the success of the project was the involvement of young people and key agencies committed to sexual assault prevention and social change.
Please see our Expect Respect! page for more information.
Legal Education Awareness Project (LEAP)
LEAP was a crime prevention initiative that assisted young people from new migrant communities to understand their legal rights and obligations and the role of the police. The project used a community development approach to engage with young people and their families, and was the recipient of a 2009 Australian Crime and Violence Prevention Award.
Please see our Legal Education Awareness Project page for further information on this project, including resources on culturally appropriate service delivery, justice issues for young new migrants, and supporting young people in police interviews.
Burn is a short film with accompanying education materials produced by Legal Aid NSW to highlight the implications of group offending. CLE staff used the Burn film and resources in legal education workshops in special education centres and secure care facilities.
Juvenile Justice Training
The Commission supported the youth sector by conducting juvenile justice training seminars to assist youth workers to better understand the legal issues facing young people and the likely consequences of youth offending.
