Description

Executive Summary: The Synergy Automotive Repairs Program (Synergy Program) is a diversionary social enterprise aimed at positively impacting the lives of young people involved in motor vehicle offending (e.g. theft, vandalism, hooning). The program was developed in order to capitalize on the interest in cars held by these young offenders as a means of developing pathways to sustainable and on-going meaningful employment in a field that matches their interests. It is suggested that, among other things, this approach would result in a reduction in the risk of further motor vehicle offending. In addition, it has also been suggested that this is a recognized skill shortage area within the automotive industry offering genuine employment opportunities for graduates of the Program.
