Braking the Cycle
Braking the Cycle is our volunteer driver mentor program designed to support learner drivers without access to a supervisor or registered vehicle to complete their logbook hours. The aim of the program is to provide young people with increased employment opportunities, community connection and driver education.
Participants are matched with a specific volunteer from our extensive and experienced driver mentor network. Mentors provide encouragement and help young people improve their self-esteem and develop positive road safety attitudes.
With the support of government, community and corporate partners, Braking the Cycle is currently offered at 37 PCYC clubs across Queensland. Since its inception in 2012, Braking the Cycle has received numerous awards from the Australian Road Safety Awards, Queensland Reconciliation Awards and Regional Achievement & Community Awards, a silver award in the 2017 National National Crime and Violence Prevention Awards, and most recently named a winner of a prestigious Prince Michael International Road Safety Award in December 2018.
