Rotary Youth Driver Awareness (RYDA) - RYDA Bracken Ridge

The Rotary Club of Albany Creek, in partnership with Road Safety Education is bringing it’s National Program to the north side of Brisbane.  The venue for the program will be the Bracken Ridge TAFE.

We have successfully run our first program in June 2016, and have a number of programs scheduled for the 2017 year.  Last year RYDA reached a record nationally in bringing the program to 50,000 students in the one year.

It is our intention to bring the program to 1000 – 1500 students in our first full year of operation, and double the student numbers in each of the next two following years.  This will make it one of the largest program venues in Australia.

The Rotary Youth Driver Awareness Program (RYDA) is a professionally produced one-day training program that effectively brings home to year 11 and 12 students the level of danger that they will face as new drivers and the impact that road trauma will have of their lives and those of their family and friends.
