Drive- a non-profit organization that was established in 2010 in order to motivate youth and adults, in all stages of their lives, in Israel to fulfill their potential. Our guiding principle is that amplifying the will and commitment will lead to a significant change in their attitude and will help improve the quality of their lives.
In order to promote the resilience of the Israeli society.
41,300 participants in courses, lectures, workshops and training, in national programs together with the Ministry of Education, government, military, academic and philanthropic foundations (50% of them are faculty and educators who make the change).
We operate nationwide, with 154 experts, staff and volunteers.

Recent research shows that what really predicts success is the ability of a person to develop are commitment and hope. Contrary to the common belief that the factors predicting success are usually the level of intelligence with which we are born and / or our socioeconomic background. Personal resilience is the ability of the person / organization to rise once more than the number of times it has fallen. This skill we can acquire and thus ensure our success over time, and this is our expertise in Drive.
The purpose of Drive's programs is to affect its participants in ways that are new to them, ways that can inspire and lead them to attain success in their lives. The model is unique since it focuses on areas which the educational or army systems doesn't touch upon and provides participants with practical tools to implement the contents learned and meet their goals.
Participants go through a dynamic and enriching process that aims to refine their skills, set personal goals and shape their own personal vision, while providing them with the tools to strengthening resilience in times of erosion and crisis, identify barriers to success and ways to overcome them.
