Full Throttle

Project Full Throttle is a bike rebuilding diversionary program, that engages youth and youth at risk ages 12-18 years. Young people are taught about bike maintenance and repairs, and once the bike is restored to a roadworthy condition  it is then donated to charitable organisations or families in need. The ethos behind this is to teach young people the value and importance of volunteering and giving back to the community.

The program engages young people, whilst providing a safe and controlled environment to learn new skills. It aims to increase self-confidence and self-esteem along with other life skills such as budgeting, healthy eating, and social skills. It helps participants understand the consequences of actions and aids in helping them to make positive life choices.

This program is delivered at Gosnells PCYC and has been piloted at Geraldton PCYC and Northam PCYC. The program has also been delivered in Merriwa as part of the WA PCYC North West Metropolitan Outreach Program.
