Driving mentors needed for former refugees

Kia ora!  Are you a driver?  Do you want to change the life of a former refugee for the better?  ChangeMakers Refugee Forum has a few opportunities left to become a refugee drive mentor, but applications close on the 16th of February 2017, with training beginning soon after.

The programme runs for a minimum of twelve weeks, with three intakes per year.  A dual-control vehicle is supplied for the practice sessions and all mentors are given training and induction for the duration of the programme.

If you’ve got a full New Zealand driver licence and have been driving for more than two years, you may qualify.
