driving a future
McGovern Foundation has been established to provide practical support to young Indigenous Australians and Torres Strait Islanders by getting them on the road to opportunity and independence.
To help Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islanders and other disadvantaged youth in Western Australia get their driver’s licence through a unique program boasting trained and trusted Indigenous mentors.
McGovern Foundation has identified the need for a specifically targeted driver mentor program that increases the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youth who obtain – and maintain – their driver’s licences.
The Wanderer Program will provide support and the necessary resources to those who otherwise would be unable to complete 50 hours of supervised driving. The program will ensure trained Indigenous mentors work from ‘start to finish’ with participants to establish the strong relationships.
