After 2 years of students travelling to and from Brisbane to participate in TRACTION, the Scenic Rim will soon be home to its own TRACTION workshop.

  • Beaudesert State High school has provided facilities on school grounds and $10,000 to help set up a new hub that will support local youth in need.
  • Harvest Point Church is also supporting the initiative with $5,000 and members of its community committed to help the workshop fit out.
  • Able Australia’s “Flipside” Youth Service is also helping the effort by providing volunteer mentors to support participants of the program.
  • Local business and community leaders are also getting behind the program, including Rod and the team from Rod Andersen Constructions.
Students from Beaudesert High School, Flagstone State Community College and Emmaus College have already participated in TRACTION at its Moorooka workshop.

The workshop will kick off in July with students from Beaudesert High School comprising the first group. The opportunity to participate in TRACTION will also be open to young people from other schools and community groups.
