Pit Stop is a strengths based re engagement offering, co designed with community matching positive role models and mentors with young people. Young people will work on small engines and cars under the guidance of volunteer industry professionals and positive community role models.
Pit Stop aims to increase work and life skills, improve mental health and increase connection for young people within the community whilst better connecting them to opportunities through the bridging of social capital. This community initiative will also work with at risk young people as an early intervention model to re-engage them at school.
The program is run twice a week, each Tuesday & Thursday, by dedicated volunteer Chris Windsor who previously owned his own mechanic business. Chris is ready to give back to the community and is excited to work with students to share his passion for mechanics.
