Want to make a difference? Have a heart for kids? Join our vibrant team of VOLUNTEERS
TRACTION is expanding and we're always looking for volunteers to help deliver the program.
VOLUNTEER AS A BIKE MENTOR
Our volunteer 'Bike Mentors' support young people aged between 12-17 years on bicycle, small engine and motorcycle projects.
You don't have to be a bicycle or mechanical expert, just have a heart for empowering young people in need. Volunteer as little as half-a-day per month or up to 2 days per week. Conditions apply* for those working with children.
Whilst some of our volunteer 'Bike Mentors' are bicycle or motorcycle enthusiasts, they have an immense range of experience. This diverse and vibrant team is the foundation of the TRACTION Community.
Our volunteers share one distinct trait - a commitment to guiding TRACTION participants through an action-based learning environment of creativity, empowerment and ownership.
Our volunteer team is supported by our Workshop Coordinators located at each TRACTION Workshop.
HELP AT EVENTS AND COLLECTING DONATED ITEMS
We also appreciate support from volunteers at TRACTION events and collecting and transporting donated items from the public to TRACTION Workshops for our young people to work on as projects.
TRACTION is a vehicle for people to make a difference and is building a vibrant community of volunteers who are experiencing a sense of contribution and belonging.
* Conditions for those working with children include a requirement that Volunteers hold a current “Blue Card” from Public Safety Business Agency (PBSA) Blue Card Services. Applications can be submitted on behalf of prospective volunteers and the process involves a "Working with Children Check" being carried out. Applicants deemed to be eligible are issued with a positive notice letter and a Blue Card or Exemption Card.
