About Pit Stop

Pit Stop is a strengths-based re-engagement program offering young people the opportunity to work on small engines and cars under the guidance of volunteer industry professionals.

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.

 

Pit Stop is run 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.
