Providing education opportunities to foster self-reliance.

About The Program

driveACADEMY; The Drive foundation has identified education as a fundamental tenet of its strategy to make a positive and tangible impact on the lives of the casualties of mental illness and addiction. 

In order to achieve its objectives, The Drive Foundation is operating the following programs in the education sector:

  • financial support through bursaries for people in recovery who are ready to take the next step towards attaining self-reliance and long-term stability.
  • recruiting people to train in the mental health and addictions services profession. Although this program would not require the student to be a casualty of mental illness and/or addiction, an emphasis is placed on this pool of recruits due to the inherent nature of a person wanting to support a cause that has touched them deeply on a personal level.

As this program develops and the charity grows, The Drive Foundation will build its own academy to operate accredited programs and courses.
