Empowering change, one RiDE at a time

19 September, 2019

We are stoked to be sharing with you an update from our newest program, RiDE, that is being delivered in Tasmania and South Australia. A partnership with MAS National, RiDE is designed to develop;

“Resilience through Inspiration & Determination leading to Employment for at-risk unemployed youth."

RiDE goes much deeper than just turning pedals over. We all know the benefits of exercise and how it can improve heath, wellbeing and enhance learning. The RiDE program seeks to take advantage of these benefits and is a mix of riding and vocational and non-vocational workshops aimed to improve skills and knowledge. RIDE is designed to give young people the best chance of success in employment or further training.

The changes we have seen in participants are nothing short of amazing! From incredible personal growth and confidence to securing traineeships and apprenticeships. The work each of our young people have put in has made us all extremely proud mentors.

"Our first intake for the RiDE Program had a 89% completion rate and with many positive employment and training outcomes"
