A LEARNER driver mentor program has become a reality in Logan, thanks to support from the state and federal governments.
The Braking the Cycle program has been developed by Logan PCYC in response to meeting a recognised community need to support young people in the Logan corridor.
The program helps those without access to a supervising driver or vehicle complete the mandatory 100 hours of supervised driving experience required to obtain their provisional licence.
The success and sustainability of the program relies heavily on corporate and community support and sponsorship.
After three years of talking about it, Breaking the Cycle co-founders, PCYC branch manager Rachel Whitford and Logan Teacher Karen Leatherbarrow said they were excited about the idea finally gaining momentum.
They are now asking everyone in the Logan community to consider how they might be able to support the program to become "long-term and self sustainable".
"It's not just about financial support", Ms Whitford said.
"The program relies heavily on voluntary time given by mentors to support young people that otherwise would not be able to gain their drivers licence. Braking the Cycle has the potential to change a young person's life in far more ways than just gaining their drivers licence."
