The St Kilda Youth Service are in desperate need of new mentors for their L2P program. The driver mentor program connects community volunteers with disadvantaged young people to help teach them how to drive.
The young people who access the service face significant barriers to completing their mandatory 120 hours of on road driving experience required to sit for a provisional driver’s license. They may not have access to a vehicle or a family member able to provide this support.
The mentor provides the learner with guidance, instruction and encouragement aimed at helping the young person with their driving skills and provides the added benefit of the opportunity for the young people involved to develop healthy relationships with positive role models in their community
The program is administered through Vic Roads and operates with the support of the Cities of Port Phillip and Stonnington and TAC. The vehicle, insurance, ongoing training and support are provided by the program.
