Jumpstart Driver Mentor program
We have 12 mentor drivers who are from a mix of backgrounds. These mentors volunteer their time from 2 hours per week, to help a learner drive get their license. Our mentors are supported with training – both in road safety and other areas (like Mental Health). Our mentors are volunteers and we also support Mutual Obligation too
Our learner drivers are from varying backgrounds too – aged from their teens to their 50’s, retirees, to working people to students. At about $6500 to get the required 80 hours with a driving school, being able to come to Jumpstart for FREE makes a huge difference in someone’s learning plans. We provide the car, pay for the petrol, you just need to put in the time!
