Drive for Life uses cars and motorsport to attract the interest of children and young people in order to give them the experience of being part of a team where collaboration, learning and involvement play key roles. By being a member of a Drive for Life club, each child or young person becomes part of a team that works together and participates in activities and events that inspire and motivate.
Drive for Life is intended for children and young people who do not quite fit in elsewhere, or who find traditional leisure activities unrewarding. Drive for Life works closely with schools, the children’s social services and parents to give children and young people a new opportunity to build their own future.
Drive for Life intends to open several new clubs at various locations in Norway in 2011. Drive for Life sells membership of its clubs to the children’s social services.
