About

Avenidas is looking for volunteers to drive for our Door to Door transportation program. Volunteers provide rides to older adults who are no longer driving, helping to keep seniors independent, healthy and engaged. Rides are provided mostly for doctor and other health related appointments, but also for classes, volunteer jobs and social outings. This is a nice opportunity for someone who would enjoy not only driving but engaging in conversations with our clients, and a having a set schedule each week. Training is provided and a commitment of 3 months is preferred.

Drivers are needed Tues, Wed, Thurs and Fri.

Afternoon shifts preferred, from 12-4.

Volunteers use their own cars and must provide license and proof of insurance. Volunteer mileage reimbursement is available. Avenidas conducts volunteer background and DMV checks for all volunteer applicants.

Please contact Jyllian Halliburton, Avenidas Volunteer Program Manager if you are interested in being a volunteer driver!
