On the surface Jacob Keed is a bus driver. Working with the Transport Canberra and City Services Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community Bus Team, it's his job to ferry around members of Canberra's Indigenous community.
But his job is so much more than that.
"A lot of our mob find themselves in situations where they're isolated from services and certain events because they have no way of getting there," Mr Keed said. "Something as simple as a bus has made such a difference to these people's lives."
Whether he's taking young mothers and their children to playgroups, taking people to funerals or organising cultural awareness days that have connected children and elders as a way of "closing the gap", Mr Keed is driving real change.
Mr Keed, 24, has been on a traineeship with the bus team for 18 months. He has also been studying at the Canberra Institute of Technology, completing a Certificate 4 in Alcohol and Other Drugs and a Certificate 4 in Training and Assessment.
