Brisbane Southside

After the successful establishment of TRACTION programs in the Redlands, TRACTION secured workshop space within the Pro Honda Motorcycles business at Moorooka and started delivering programs at the new location in January 2016. Pro Honda is a family business, and Director John Peterson has been a fierce TRACTION advocate helping us establish partnerships with Honda Australia and Australia Post.

TRACTION’s other Brisbane Southside delivery point is at Durack at the Glenala Trade Skills Centre located onsite at GlenalaState High School. TRACTION first delivered programs onsite for young people in need from Inala and surrounds in July 2018 thanks to support from the Coca-Cola Australia Foundation.

As at April 2019, TRACTION had supported over 175 participants on Brisbane’s Southside since January 2016 through engagements with a number of schools, special assistance schools and referral agencies, including:

  • Yeronga State High School
  • Clairvaux MacKillop State College
  • The Murri School (Acacia Ridge)
  • Marsden State High School
  • Beaudesert State High School
  • Inala Flexi Learning Centre
  • Hemmant Flexi Learning Centre
  • Access Community Services
  • Youth Outreach Service (The Salvation Army)
  • Brisbane South Child Safety
