Catholic Youth Care. Nic Lughadha, Colma (2000) Catholic Youth Care drug education and prevention programme for primary schools. Facilitators guidelines. Dublin: Catholic Youth Care.

This programme was initially piloted from 1994 to 1998 as a joint project between Finglas Youth Service (CYC) and the Eastern Health Board (now Northern Area Health Board). The Finglas Youth Service (CYC) submitted a proposal to extend the programme once the Finglas/ Cabra Drugs Task Force was established. Four full-time drug prevention officers were appointed in June 1998 facilitating a programme called 'Awareness FC'.

The experiences have been used to develop this programme which is aimed at youth workers, specifically those working with youths at primary school level. The programme operated over seven weeks with a group for one hour and fifteen minutes per session, with groups no larger than fifteen, with two facilitators per group. The programme aims to increase the participant's awareness of drugs and related issues, to encourage them to make informed decisions and to discuss self-esteem amongst participants.
