What It Is 

Horsham Rural City Council and Federation University have teamed up to participate in VicHealth’s Alcohol Cultural Change Initiative. This initiative is an evidence-based approach to changing cultures of risky drinking within the Victorian population. VicHealth has funded nine intervention projects that work with different cultures of drinking across Victoria. These projects aim to change the way people drink alcohol.

Who It's For

Youth C.A.N works with teenagers (aged 12-18 years) and their parents in the rural area of Horsham.

What We Have Done

The Youth C.A.N project officially launched in November 2017 in conjunction with the Kannamaroo Festival. The project launch event was held at Sawyer Park and included a variety of activities for teenagers.

These included a pop-up photo booth, an airbrushed tattooist, free food and drinks, hip hop dancers and a colour war:
