Drive for Life

I (Mark Passfield) have a simple philosophy that I live by 'if you live in or identify with a community, you need to give back to this community'.

Brisbane North Chamber of Commerce (BNCC) is not only a way to meet and do business with other businesses it is a business community. Those that are members of the BNCC contribute to the business community that they identify with.  We not only have a responsibility to the Brisbane North Business community we also have a responsibility to the wider community.

I recently caught up with Louise Paschke from the Salvation Army and she has challenged the BNCC Members to get involved with their local community through their Drive for Life service. A simple gift of time.

Drive for life is an organisation that helps young people who are overcoming adversity to obtain their driver license.  Drive for life is a mentoring program that helps these young people accumulate driving hours towards achieving their driver license. Just a couple of hours a month is what Louise is asking of volunteers to improve the young participants chances of employment and social interaction. The young participants are then asked to contribute to their community in return.
