TRACTION empowers young people in need and helps them positively engage with their communities, discover their talents and create their own future.
TRACTION AS FEATURED ON CHANNEL 7's "THE GREAT DAY OUT"
Heartfelt thanks to the crew at Channel 7's The Great Day Out for featuring this story about TRACTION on the show on 28th May. It's a privilege, a lot of fun and plenty of learning being part of the TRACTION team, and support that helps get the word out about what we're doing to help empower young people in need is fantastic.

A DAY AT TRACTION
TRACTION provides the opportunity for young people to get on the tools and refurbish and customise their own projects from bicycles, lawn mowers, motorcycles and other machines donated by the community. Supported by mentors, participants discover talents, build confidence and self-belief. Here’s a snippet of a day at TRACTION. Thanks Alex for filming and collating these moments, captured at our West End, Moorooka and Capalaba workshops.
