Who we are
The Fit2Dive (F2D) Foundation Inc. is a not for profit community partnership that is dedicated to reducing youth road trauma. Its focus is on building the capacity of young people to make good decisions when faced with risky driving situations, whether as a passenger or a driver. F2D is about changing attitudes and behaviours - not teaching driving skills.
The philosophy of the F2D program incorporates the belief that young people have the capacity to change and influence attitudes and behaviours in relation to risky driving, and supports them to take ownership and responsibility for their own and their peers' safety.
The F2D Foundation Inc. is an incorporated association, funded by contributions from the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), VicRoads (through the Victorian Community Road Safety Partnership Program), Department of Education and Training (DET), Royal Automobile Club of Victoria (RACV), and local government, as well as sponsorship, school subscriptions and fundraising.
Central to the F2D approach is using university students trained as Peer Facilitators to run workshops with young people in school and community settings. The main component of the F2D program is half-day workshop for Year 11 students in schools. There are also forums for young people in the community and a workshop designed for young offenders.
