The Boroondara Volunteer Resource Centre is advertising this role on behalf of City of Boroondara L2P Driving Program.
The TAC L2P program is designed to help disadvantaged young people aged between 16-21 years gain 120 hours of driving experience, under the supervision of a volunteer fully licensed driver.
The role and function of a mentor is to supervise rather than instruct; be a role model driver and support the young learner so that they may apply for their probationary license. This process will aid the confidence and development of young drivers.
Mentors will work in conjunction with Council’s L2P Project Officer, who will provide advice and support to the volunteers. The L2P Project Officer is advised under the guidance and direction of a professional driving instructor and the Department of Transport who provide recommendations that appropriately support young learner drivers.
There is no cost to young people or volunteers in the program, and petrol and an automatic vehicle are provided for use during the TAC L2P Program, noting that all mentor supervising lessons will be conducted only in the L2P vehicle.
Mentors are required to undertake a selection process in addition to relevant training. The training is designed to better understand the role of a supervising driver on the road.
*During COVID-19, we are taking all necessary steps to assist with safety in the program as advised and directed from The Department of Health and Human Services.
