Workshop Facilitators

Fit to Drive Foundation

Seeking Workshop Facilitators who are passionate about working with young people and want to make a difference! Great pay, flexible hours and fun workshops in a great team environment.

About the organisation

We are Fit to Drive: Victoria’s leading road safety education provider for young people and their families. Since 2014, we’ve delivered impactful workshops to over 140,000 young people around Victoria, both face-to-face and online.

At Fit to Drive, our vision is ‘young lives free from road trauma’. Road trauma is the second largest killer of young people after suicide. Youth road trauma is a community problem, it impacts everyone, and needs a whole community response.

Each day we send highly trained passionate young people into schools and community settings – face to face or online – to empower actions and promote a safe road culture to save young lives and prevent injuries on our roads.

At the F2D Year 11 Workshops the facilitators don't tell, lecture or judge. The workshops are fun, positive, and structured, aiming to spark real conversations about the issues that really matter most to young people on the roads.

Our Purpose

Fit to Drive remains as a community-driven effort in providing proactive road safety education to save lives and prevent injuries on Victorian roads. We do this by:

  • Empowering young people and families to keep each other safe on the roads
  • Building relationships with others who share our vision of a future free from road trauma for young people
  • Promoting a road safety culture in every community we reach
  • Providing thought and action leadership on road safety

Our Unique Position

  • We empower positive actions by showing instead of “telling”
  • We recognise that young people have the capacity to make positive choices
  • We use positive psychology and research-based best practices in road safety education
  • We employ a near-peer facilitator model
  • We collaborate with others, within their community

Our Values

  • We empower young people to keep each other safe
  • We connect and engage with our communities
  • We are ‘thought leaders’ and ‘action leaders’ in road safety for young people
  • We listen and reflect
  • We put trust, respect, and integrity at the heart of everything we do

The Position

The Fit to Drive Foundation’s Workshop Facilitators are responsible for the on-the-ground facilitation of the Foundation’s preventative road safety education programs in schools, at other education providers, and in communities both face-to-face and online.

You will be primarily facilitating our flagship program, the F2D Year 11 Workshop. We are looking for young people who have the ability to relate to diverse audiences of young people and engage them in dynamic, safe conversations. In the F2D Year 11 Workshop, Facilitators lead a class of students in scripted activities and discussions to inspire safer choices on our roads.

We offer training in facilitation and provide opportunities to extend your road safety knowledge. If you already have experience working with young people and a proven passion for road safety, this will be an advantage.

Core Responsibilities

  • Develop and maintain a comprehensive understanding of the Foundation’s workshop content, including the Victorian Road Safety Strategy 2021-2030
  • Work closely with the Education Coordinator – Development and Training, to build and refine exceptional facilitation skills through individual and group training sessions, conducted face-to-face and online
  • Facilitate the Foundation’s workshops, primarily the F2D Year 11 Workshop, to maximise engagement while meeting key messages and program outcomes
  • Understand the Foundation’s mission and values, and represent them professionally
  • Adhere to all the Foundation’s policies and processes to ensure the safety and quality of workshops
  • Display positive role modelling and social leadership behaviours
