Help Brake the Cycle

The Braking the Cycle program at PCYC Caboolture urgently seeks volunteer driver mentors.


Braking the Cycle is a learner driver mentoring program that helps disadvantaged youth get their mandatory 100 hours to obtain their licence. We match our volunteer mentors with program participants and supply all materials and training.


PCYC Caboolture Braking the Cycle Program Coordinator Emma Hart states, “obtaining a driver’s licence is a major milestone for most young people. A licence helps young people secure employment and access further education and housing opportunities.” The BTC program in Caboolture has had over 50 successful licence graduates since the program started in 2019.


For thousands of young Queenslanders, completing their mandatory 100 hours of supervised driving is a significant obstacle. PCYC Caboolture is experiencing this firsthand, with over 150 young people waiting to access the program. Volunteers must have (or be able to obtain) a blue card, have held an open licence for more than one year and be able to commit at least two hours per week to become a driver mentor.
