Wheels in Motion
Do you have a love of driving, a passion for helping young people – and a few hours to spare each week?
This volunteering role might be just for you!
The City of Salisbury & City of Playford run a volunteer based mentor driving program, Wheels in Motion that supports young people aged 16-25 to obtain their P’s. The program is available to young people who would otherwise be unable to qualify for their P’s by giving eligible participants access to low cost driving mentors (allowing them to build their driving hours) and best practice road safety content. The key objective of the program is to support young people to obtain their license, reducing a significant barrier to gaining employment.
We are currently recruiting volunteer mentors to deliver the program to more young people.
If you have your full license, an excellent driving history, good communication skills and a desire to help young people – we’d love to hear from you! (All volunteers complete compulsory training and mandatory screenings).
A dedicated vehicle is provided, various shifts are available. For more information contact Sarah on 8406 8555 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Salisbury Youth Council
The Salisbury Youth Council is an opportunity for young people to make a difference in the community, to be involved in decision making and inform Council about issues that affect young people.
The council is made up of 18 young people aged 14 - 25 who represent different schools, community groups, agencies or clubs in Salisbury.
Each year, the council works on two main projects that the council sees as important for themselves and other young people. The project teams then plan, develop and implement activities around these ideas through consultation with other young people in the community, local businesses, community groups, youth agencies and organisations.
Applications for Salisbury Youth Council 2021 close on Friday 16 October.
