Drive positive change for local learners

Eurobodalla Council is seeking volunteer mentors for a new program that helps drive positive change in the lives of disadvantaged youth.

Y Drive pairs volunteers with young learner drivers to help them achieve the 120 hours of driving experience they need to get their provisional licence (P-plates).

Many young people don’t have access to a car or a supervising driver to accumulate the required hours behind the wheel.

Having a licence can make a real difference to a young person’s life, including by increasing their ability to seek and maintain employment.

Allan May Holden has come on board the program by supplying a car for participants to drive.

Volunteer mentors will receive training and the opportunity to drive positive change in return for one to two hours of their time per week and a willingness to share their driving knowledge and a bit of patience.
