Village Without Walls

Driver Helping Member

Village Without Walls provides rides for members to medical appts, grocery and other shopping and social events. Our volunteer drivers receive defensive driving training and DMV checks to qualify as a driver and their auto insurance and driver license must be current.

The Village Without Walls Transportation Coordinator performs three basic functions for our Villages,

(1) Make sure drivers schedule and complete their training and DMV checks, and have up-to-date driver information.

(2) Compile information about our transportation program monthly and submit it to the Villages NW Transportation Coordinator.

(3) Calculate the quarterly reimbursement amounts for each driver since Village Without Walls currently pays our Village drivers 25 cents a mile for all their trips.

This is a very key position within our Village since member transportation is the most often service requested by our members.

Requires someone who is detail-oriented and comfortable with Excel spreadsheets.
