Skoda launch "Driver’s Seat Initiative" to encourage young people to pursue their creative passions and have a positive impact in their local communities.

ŠKODA are looking for people aged 16-25 who show a Driven By Something Different attitude, have a passion for the arts and want to gain new skills to better themselves and their community. If selected, young recruits will be invited to attend a 5 day ‘Get Started’ programme, in collaboration with the Prince’s Trust.

The 5-day course will equip young recruits with the skills and confidence to go on to achieve their goals. Each course will culminate in a group activity to showcase what they have learned over the week and celebrate their achievements. In the 6 months following, Driver’s Seat Initiative Champions will keep in touch with the participants, to help them achieve their ambitions.

The initiative will be launched in partnership with the Prince’s Trust and Paloma Faith who herself was helped by the Trust when she was a teenager.
