ABOUT: KJøR FOR LIVET
Kjør for Livet engages troubled youth, otherwise at risk of dropping out of school, through an empowering team framework using adrenaline-filled sports in which young participants choose their activities, set their own team rules and build a supporting peer-community. Kjør for Livet provides a safe space for teenagers to interact socially, thereby attracting hard to reach youth and preventing them from engaging in harmful or illegal activities.

PRODUCT & SERVICES
Adrenaline-filled sporting activities to engage hard to reach youth.
IMPACT STATEMENT
In Europe, too many young people leave school prematurely, running a high risk of being unemployed and socially marginalized. The use of adrenaline-filled sport works as a gateway to the core of Kjør for Livet’s programs: a robust community with teams at the centre, combined with a systemized methodology seeking to allow youth to become productive members of society. When entering a Drive for life program, each person gets introduced to a social network, a safe yet exploring space, with strict structures and pride. This approach seeks to prevent crime and other anti-social behaviour, while supporting the participants in school and preparing for a future where they stand stable at the centre, rather than outside of society.
