About the Role

Greenlight Movement (GLM) is a learn to drive mentor program for disadvantaged young people aged 16-24 years who do not have a parent, guardian or responsible adult to support them to achieve their 120 hours of required supervised driving in order to obtain their provisional licence. The Greenlight Movement provides disadvantaged young people with a lifelong skill whilst also improving their chances of finding meaningful employment and promoting independence. The support from our Volunteer Mentors is crucial for the success of the program, which operates by pairing up a learner driver with a Volunteer Mentor for a 2 hour lesson each week in a supplied Greenlight vehicle.  In addition to an insured and fuelled car, Greenlight also provides training and on-going support.

Your involvement with GLM will help a young person:

  • Reach their goals
