L2P Learner Driver Mentor Program

L2P-Cyan.png

The Yarra Ranges L2P program is an innovative community based volunteer program which assists learner drivers who are facing significant barriers in gaining the 120 hours required to apply for a probationary licence.

How it works

Learner drivers are matched with fully licenced volunteer mentors who have participated in a selection and training process. Using a sponsored vehicle, the learner and their mentor go out driving once a week, working towards the 120 hours of driving practice.

L2P also incorporates up to 7 free professional driving lessons by a registered driving instructor to help develop the young person's safe driving skills and knowledge.

Mentors

The L2P program is always in need of fantastic people to take on the role of mentoring. Through mentoring we hope to empower young people in developing their potential and building resilience.

  • hold a current full Victorian Driver's Licence
  • undertake a Police check, Working With Children Check, and a driver history check

Support L2P

Each year Yarra Ranges L2P must cover costs associated with leasing a vehicle, fuel, professional lessons and volunteer training which equate to over $20,000 annually. Continued sponsorship is incredibly valuable in reaching our goal and maintaining this important program that creates a positive impact in the lives of these young people and their families

By being affiliated with the L2P program, you will be investing in the safety of young drivers and addressing a need that supports young people, families and the broader community. The L2P program is recognised within the local community as being of great community value and is a fantastic opportunity for any organisation to be seen supporting an initiative that aims to uplift and enable disadvantaged young people increasing their opportunities for further education and employment.

We want to thank our current financial supporters for their incredible contributions and ongoing commitment to the L2P program and the benefits it provides to the community.
