It was a pleasure for TRACTION to deliver a 4-day Bicycle Build Boot Camp for the fourth group of participants from Access Community Services (ACS) in December 2017 at the Moorooka workshop.

Access Community Services is one of Australia’s leaders in multicultural issues, with over 30 years of experience in the provision of settlement, employment, training, youth support services, housing and social enterprise opportunities for migrants, refugees and Australian born clients. Services are delivered right across Queensland with a particular focus on the South East, including Logan City, Ipswich City and the Gold Coast.

The TRACTION Bicycle Build boot camp experience provides the chance for young people from the ACS network to strip down, assemble and personalise a bicycle donated by the community and keep the bicycle at the conclusion of the program. 

The boot camp also provided the chance for participants to have fun whilst learning new skills and making new friends, build confidence and self-belief, and build practical and life skills.
