RAAG has assisted with road safety advice for this project, and made a donation of $5000 for a second hand late model vehicle to enable the PCYC [BTC] Learner driver/Mentor program to commence and on the road.
Braking the Cycle (BTC) is a Learner Driver Mentor Program (LDMP) developed by the Queensland Police-Citizens Youth Welfare Association (QPCYWA) through the support of the State and Federal Governments. The program has formed partnerships with community organisations and Job Service Providers to allow opportunities for both Learners and Mentors.
The intent of the program is to provide disadvantaged youth with the opportunity to obtain their driving licence through the support of a volunteer mentor network. The focus is to deliver a service that will “enable” young persons to develop a core life and work skill that will support further opportunities in the workplace, training, and education environments.
By getting a licence the program aims to empower young people to break the cycle of welfare, unemployment, and anti-social behaviour, thereby reducing the burden on our communities of crime and young people being involved in serious traffic crash incidents.
QPCYWA has the responsibility for final decision making and implementation of the Braking the Cycle Program. The Executive Committee will be responsible for the overarching recommendations for the implementation of the program across the State. The executive committee will provide strategic recommendations to ensure the program is delivered in an efficient and effective manner. The Executive committee will meet twice annually (Sept and Feb) and will be provided with up to date information and statistics on the progress of the program, to ensure value for investment.
The Braking the Cycle Executive Committee has 4 aims:
The executive committee is comprised of authorities in the transport, employment, research, indigenous and community sectors.
