TRACTION

03 April 2018

TRACTION's mission is to empower young people in need. Its Community Bike Build Program provides the chance for young people in need to restore bicycles donated by the community whilst being supported by volunteers who provide support and positive role models during their participation.

TRACTION is a community-based program helping young people discover, connect and experience their own positive and successful futures. Traction understands that everybody learns differently and that some students don’t realise their full potential in a classroom. That is why the program offers young people the chance to participate in an alternative, action based learning environment while being supported by encouraging relationships, community and employment opportunities.

The TRACTION program aims to impart lifelong skills and a sense of pride and achievement to students to set them on a positive future path.

TRACTION bike build boot camp

The TRACTION bike build boot camp is the perfect school holiday experience that your kids will never forget! Proudly supported by Cycling Brisbane, they’ll learn hands-on how to strip down, assemble and personalise their own new bicycle, in a five-day program providing a unique environment to learn maintenance skills and build confidence and self-belief.
