Youth promotion

Use your Find Legal Answers resources to promote awareness of legal issues to young people

Did you know that children as young as 11 can be issued with a fine? Or that people under 18 can sign a contract? That apprentices have the same rights as other employees? Or that people under 18 have to give their name to the police if they are drinking alcohol in a public place? Line drawing of two people with images of a screen, id card and scales of justice

Day-to-day life can bring out a lot of legal problems which can be frightening and stressful for young people. It is important that young people know their rights, and where to get help. 

Many libraries are involved in events and activities during Youth Week. You can use your Find Legal Answers resources to promote awareness of legal issues during Youth Week and at other times of the year.

Social media

One of the simplest ways to let your community know about the law and where to get help is via social media. Check our youth social media campaign to find sample posts and images to use across your channels. 

Youth quiz

One simple way to provide information about the law is to display the PDF icon Find Legal Answers youth quiz poster in your youth area or at your events. The poster has a QR code that links to a quiz dealing with legal issues relevant to young people.

The Legal information for young people page links to online booklets, factsheets and sources of legal help for young people.

The help sheets below highlight some of the resources available on the website. 

Why not move your Tool Kit to your youth area during Youth Week or at other times of the year? Or have it on display during youth events and programs? Or display the Tool Kit flyer?

Young people can have problems with many areas of the law and it's a good opportunity to show them that information is available in the library.

You may wish to order copies of legal pamphlets to display or give away at your events. To order, go to Legal Aid's Order a publication page and look under the Young people topic.

Promotional material

Display your Find Legal Answers promotional material in places where young people will see it.
