The Right Track - a driving related programme for changing young peoples lives

The Right Track is an initiative designed and developed by the Eduk8 Charitable Trust and is multi-experiential, highly effective programme, which has a profound influence on the lives of participants and supporters.

Although driving-related, the effects of TRT reach far more deeply into the lives of the attendees, their whanau and communities. TRT uses real-life scenarios and presentations from a broad range of facilitators and genuine people who care and want to make a difference. Eduk8 is indebted to those involved in the delivery of the programme and the support given by  Judges, Community Magistrates, Courts, NZ Police, NZ Fire Service, St.John Ambulance , Auckland and Burwood Spinal Units, and incredible presenters inclduing Roz and Martin Williams, Chris Hanley, Katrina Spence, Rachel Borsteinas, Maria Cross, Tim Lockwood, Gary Farrow, Alf Filipaina and many others who have contributed their time, wisdom and expertise during the past ten years.

“Unsung Heroes” a TVNZ Series in January 2013 featured the role of the volunteers on the programme and is one way to understand the nature of what is undertaken.

Statistics for this programme confirm an 80% non-recidivism rate since inception – February 2007 – clearly indicating the enormous success of the programme and the longitudinal impact on this high risk cohort. Interestingly enough, The Right Track, according to NZ Police Statistics released in March 2012, has changed the behaviours and attitudes of the young people  to such a degree that not only has the programme changed their driving behaviours but it has also changed their other offending patterns, a remarkable  feat.
