Youthlaw has a new online resource for young people called StreetSmart at www.streetsmartvic.com.au
It’s designed to be just as easy to use on a smartphone as it is on a tablet or desktop and it has all the important info young people need to know about police, Protective Services Officers (PSOs), ticket inspectors and security guards. All the info is in plain English and it has a heap of useful tips on how to handle yourself with authorities and get free legal help when you need it.
Youthlaw lawyers are available to come out and speak with young people at schools, youth programs and events over the next 6 months about StreetSmart and about their rights when dealing with authorities. If you work with a group of young people who might be interested in having a guest speaker from Youthlaw, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 9611 2412.
