Green Light Initiative

They say it takes a village to raise a child, and learning to drive is no different. The Green Light Initiative is a community-based program designed to bring Learners and their supervising drivers together to strengthen partnerships and develop solutions to improve youth road safety. 

Delivered in collaboration with Victoria Police, the Green Light Initiative was developed in response to a community desire for a return to face-to-face programs that tackle issues regarding youth road safety. 

Up to 80 people can participate in one Green Light Initiative session, which is free for attendees. The in-person format involves a mixture of large group discussions as well as small group brainstorming, to encourage open dialogues between Learners and their supervising drivers. Participants also engage with Victoria Police officers to learn L-plate relevant rules and restrictions, and create an actionable plan to tackle a local road safety issue. 

What to expect

  • We provide a platform that strengthens partnerships between young people and supervising drivers, to increase their confidence with learning to use the roads

  • As a local community, participants engage with local Victoria Police officers to discuss the road safety concerns prevalent within their area, and to create tangible solutions to travel safely
