The grant delivered two parts for the participants – the theory program for Learners Permits, paid for by the funding and 50 hours supervised driving plus payment of their first year of their driver's licence on successful completion of driving test for a select group of participants. Kensington PCYC Centre Manager Amanda Dow commended Kaylee’s dedication and commitment learning to drive with the assistance of Drivertel, the commercial driving school who assisted with provision of driving instructors to support the participants. “It has been such a fantastic program for the Centre and organisation. We have seen all of our participants develop their road awareness skills as well as a huge improvement in their self-esteem. We are so very proud of all of them.” “We are extremely grateful to WAPOL for the funding opportunity as well as Drivertel for their support." The program ties in with the Road Ribbon for Road Safety campaign for the upcoming festive season which has a Towards Zero message - we all have a part to play in road safety. Kaylee received a road ribbon as part of the campaign in addition to one year free roadside assistance under the Free2Go RAC program, allowing peace of mind and security while gaining confidence on the road in her first year of driving unassisted. The Kensington PCYC Centre delivers accredited training for youth-at-risk in addition to recreational programs for the local community.
