We help young people navigate this difficult phase by providing services and opportunities that support them in developing a sense of a personal competence, usefulness, belonging and empowerment.
BOLT™ (Bicycles Over Lunchtime)
BOLT™ is an innovative program which helps primary school students remain engaged in education and the local community.
Through participating in bike maintenance activities young people learn valuable life skills such as communication, leadership, responsibility and teamwork. Positive male mentorship and socialising help them gain confidence and build peer relationships and friendships.
BOLT was introduced by South Port UnitingCare in 2013 at one local school and over the next 3 years the program expanded to 27 schools growing its footprint throughout Greater Melbourne and regional Victoria. As of today the program has been delivered to over 500 participants.
