Friday and Saturday nights:
Transport kids out of the city who are at risk of getting into trouble in town, or cannot get home (by consent of youth). Talk to police, shopkeepers and bouncers in the city area for details of Aboriginal youth in the area.

Encourage youth around the city to be safe and to head back home.
Walk the youths to their house doors and talk to parents if the youth is under the age of 14. Discuss with youth about their time management skills (so that they don’t miss the train or bus again).
