Learner Driver Mentor Volunteer Drivers - Coffs Harbour

Apply now Role no: 494687
Availability: Business hours, Evenings, Mornings, Weekends
Time involved: 1 - 4 hours per week
Location: Regional NSW

Would you like to support culturally diverse community members in the Coffs Harbour area who may be struggling to gain a driver’s licence?

  • Flexible hours/days between 1-4 hours weekly, ongoing
  • Vehicles and training provided
  • Driver's Licence required

The Program

The Learner Driver Mentor Program supports new drivers to become licensed by providing them access to a vehicle for on-road practice while a volunteer supervises them. This program is designed to assist learners who may not have ready access to a suitable supervising driver but would like to gain their licence for employment and/or social inclusion reasons. 

The opportunity

Mentors are volunteers who help Learner Drivers complete their hours of “on-road” driving experience.

This role suits someone over the age of 18 who is an experienced, licenced driver and able to mentor a learner driver through a variety of road conditions in a supportive manner. Opportunities are also available for volunteers who are multi-lingual and/or bring administrative skills.

The impact

As a volunteer mentor you will be helping people to overcome barriers that disadvantage them by not having a driver’s licence. You will be creating access to employment, study opportunities, and their independence. Your participation will contribute to building stronger social networks and cross-cultural understanding in the Coffs Harbour area.

Red Cross will ensure you have training, ongoing support and access to other opportunities within the World’s largest humanitarian network.
