What is RYDA

Originally Rotary Youth Driver Awareness, the RYDA program is all about Road Safety Education for Year 10 High School Students.  More here

Today the RYDA program is designed by the independent RSE-Road Safety Education body and coordinated by local Rotary clubs.  Funding is arranged locally via grants (from Queensland Transport, RACQ, etc)

Venues on the Sunshine Coast include, Caloundra, Nambour & Noosa. There are seven programs in Caloundra during October with eight participating schools: Unity College and Pacific Lutheran College, Meridan State College, Beerwah State High and Glasshouse Christian College, Kawana State College, Siena Catholic College and Caloundra State High.

Sunshine Coast Passport will be volunteering at a number of these sessions.

The day consists of six sessions led by professional facilitators covering: 

  • Road Choices,
  • Crash Investigators
  • The ‘I’ in Drive
  • Mind Matters
  • Drive SOS
  • Speed & Stopping

Rotary Volunteers’ roles are:

  • Session venue Supervisors – set up, ensure laptops etc working, introduce facilitators, time keepers
  • Student Group Leaders – to ensure each group of students gets from one session to the next efficiently and on time

The program generally starts around 9.15am and finishes by 2pm. Morning tea and lunch are provided.
