Tracee is the Project Coordinator for Braking the Cycle at PCYC Crestmead, which is a Learner Driver Mentor program assisting young people to attain their license and employment.
Tracee has been engaged with this program for 4 years and brings with her a wealth of knowledge garnered from her corporate background in Finance and Event management. Utilising this skill set, she is able to skill up and tool up her participants into careers where PCYC Crestmead is sitting on a 94% employment rate.
The Braking the Cycle program has evolved at Crestmead into a holistic model encompassing mentored driving sessions with life skills workshops in resume writing, interview techniques, workplace practices and understanding, financial literacy, nutrition and most importantly self-respect and self-worth. This then results in a positive, engaged and work ready employee schooled in the realities of what employment really is, who engage in careers for the long term.
