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 2019, TRACTION had supported over 350 participants and engaged with most schools and special assistance schools in the Redlands, 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

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.
