Scenic Rim

TRACTION was first approached in 2017 by a number of schools from the Scenic Rim region to deliver programs for their students. TRACTION responded to this need and commenced delivering programs, initially from a Brisbane workshop located in Moorooka. TRACTION then secured funding to establish a workshop in Beaudesert to serve as a regional hub, and in July 2018 the new workshop was established.

TRACTION’s presence and the focus on helping venerable young people in the Scenic Rim has attracted significant support from the local business community, critical for the long term sustainability of the program.

In addition to this wonderful support from the local community, TRACTION is fortunate to have established a support partnership with The Bryan Foundation, which since July 2019, has enabled TRACTION to expand the number of places available for local youth.

As at April 2021, TRACTION has supported 133 participants across the Scenic Rim region through engagements with schools, special assistance schools and referral agencies, including:

  • Emmaus College
  • Beaudesert State High School
  • Beaucare
