Volunteer at Council

Council recognises the valuable contribution of volunteers throughout our municipality.  They are the lifeblood of our community and vital to its social, economic and environmental wellbeing.

There are many opportunities to volunteer within Council.

TAC L2P Program

Are you a fully licensed driver over 21 years old and interested in road safety? We are looking for enthusiastic people who can commit 1-2 hours a week to help a learner driver to get their licence.

The TAC L2P Program helps young learner drivers who don’t have a supervising driver or a vehicle and help them complete the 120 hours of driving experience they’ll need before taking their licence test.

A driver licence opens up new opportunities for education and employment. As a volunteer mentor you’ll contribute to your community by helping a young person take their next steps toward independence.

Mentors need to meet the following criteria to join the TAC L2P program:

  • Be over 21 years of age with an interest in helping young people
  • Hold a full, current Victorian driver’s licence
  • Undertake a screening process by your local TAC L2P Program
