About this opportunity

We are looking for passionate people to help our young people get through the licencing process - both theory and practical. The Volunteer Driver Mentor will be required to sit in the car with program participants, assist in logging necessary hours and reinforce safe driving skills. (Salvation Army vehicles are provided and the use of personal cars will not be needed).

This is as much about engaging both young people and mentors in their community as it is about licensing! We know that feeling part of a community assists with building a sense of belonging, improved mental health, developing pro-social behaviours and connecting to a shared social responsibility.

Role suitable for Centrelink applicants.

Mandatory Requirements of the Role

  • Complete The Salvation Army's volunteer registration, induction modules and any other training as required.
  • Criminal History Check (Police Check) and WWCC (QLD Blue Card) are required for the role.
  • Applicants must have a valid drivers licence and a good driving history.
  • Providing 2 references is mandatory for all roles that work with persons under 18 years.

Desired Requirements for the role

  • Driving, mentoring, training casework or similar experiences are highly regarded for the role.

Time Commitment

  • Minimum 2 hour commitment a week (flexible) on an ongoing basis of at least 3 months.
  • Please advise your availability with your expression of interest.

A role profile for this position is available upon request and will also be provided to the successful applicant during the interview process.

To find out more, please express your interest and availability.
