Since its inception, TRACTION has built a strong representative presence in the Redlands. After beginning operations in 2015 at ‘Shed 27’ in Capalaba, TRACTION secured a larger, dedicated facility within the Alexandra Hills TAFE Campus in 2017.

As at April 2021, TRACTION has supported 546 participants across the Logan region through engagements with schools, special assistance schools and referral agencies, including:

  • Alexandra Hills State High School
  • Redlands District Special School
  • Capalaba State College
  • Wellington Point State High School
  • Victoria Point State School
  • Cleveland District State High School
  • Hemmant Flexi Learning Centre
  • Wynnum State High School
  • Balmoral State High School
  • Villanova College
  • Bayside Child Safety
  • Redlands Youth Justice
  • Bayside State College
  • Sycamore School
  • Ohana College (formerly The Spot Academy)
  • Project Booyah (Queensland Police Service)
  • Nursery Road Special School

We have also established relationships with referral agencies such as Bayside Child Safety and Redlands Youth Justice who support some of the region’s most challenged and vulnerable young people.
