TRACTION 'MOBILE' COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
TRACTION is developing 'mobile workshop' capability to we can deliver 1-day 'Bicycle Build' programs for communities in need. These workshops are typically delivered in conjunction with local Councils, land/community development businesses, and community organisations. The workshops provide an experience that young people will never forget and:
TRACTION Mentors facilitate each workshop and provide technical assistance and positive role-modelling. The workshops are perfect for those interested in learning more about bicycle mechanics and maintenance. Participants will disassemble, re-assemble and quality-check a bicycle and get to keep the bicycle at the end of the day.
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS DELIVERED SO FAR
YARRABILBA 1-DAY 'BIKE BUILD' PROGRAM
The first 1-day Bike Build workshops was held at Yarrabilba on Friday 23rd February thanks to a community development grant from Lend Lease and Bendigo Bank. TRACTION will deliver 3 workshops for 12-15 year old residents of the new masterplanned residential community at Yarrabilba. The new community in the Logan regions will ultimately be home for 50,000 residents and significant investment is being made into infrastructure like schools and community sporting facilities. The TRACTION workshop provided an experience that the participants will never forget. They had fun whilst learning new skills and making new friends. Not only did the participants learn about bikes, they built practical and life skills in a work-like environment. Read more
