Braking the cycle

Braking the Cycle is a community based program that partners volunteer mentors with learner drivers.

The Mentor acts as a supervisor, enabling the learner to complete the 100 mandatory log book

hours required to achieve their licence.

By not having access to a vehicle or person to assist with the logged hours, young people are therefore

restricted in employment opportunities and can quickly become trapped in a cycle of disadvantage.

The program will enable young people to develop a core life and employment skill that will support

further opportunities in the workplace, training, and education environments.

Young people will be empowered to break the cycle of disadvantage, unemployment, and anti-social

behaviour thereby reducing crime and traffic incidents.

 

Volunteer with Purpose

Volunteers are mentors from the community who have held an ‘open’ drivers licence for at least 12 months and are willing to undertake a days training to fulfil the role of a supervising driver.

Time given to the program is flexible to your needs and can range from one hour to several hours

per week. The time commitment is prearranged around the mentor’s availability.

Mentors develop and maintain a purposeful, empowering, and supportive relationship with the learner which will have a lasting impact on their life.

The program offers an opportunity to volunteer in a way that has tangible outcomes for young people and the community.

Mentoring provides opportunities to meet new people, develop new skills and add variety to the mentors life.

2 Learner Drivers

The program is for people aged 16-25 with a current learner’s permit who face barriers to meeting the 100

log book hour requirement. Typically learners will not have access to a vehicle or supervising driver.

Young people can be referred to the program through Job Service Agencies, youth agencies,

schools, or can refer themselves.

PCYC membership is a requirement of the program.

3 Become a Sponsor

The success and sustainability of Braking the Cycle relies on community and corporate donations.

The program needs sponsorship, community support, and in-kind donations of goods and services to meet day to day operational costs.
