Driver Helping Member

Village Without Walls is a community of older adults who support each other in successful living as we age. For those Village members who no longer drive, we provide transportation to medical appointments, shopping and to social events. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are only providing transportation to medical appts using masks and maintaining physical distancing at this time.

Our drivers get members where they need to go and they also provide friendly social interaction. You will get to know members' interests and history plus become friends over time. Drivers set their own schedule and availability.

Basic requirements for drivers are:

  • complete Village Without Walls volunteer training
  • have a valid Driver’s License with a minimum of five years driving experience and safe driving record (no suspensions in last 2 years)
  • have no moving violations in last 3 years
  • have no more than four non-moving violations such as Failure to Appear, License not in possession, or No Proof of Insurance/Registration
  • have valid vehicle liability insurance
  • have a personal vehicle which passes our vehicle check
  • successfully complete the National Safety Council online Defensive Driving course
  • pass the driver road test.
Valuable Volunteer Traits
  • Willingness to commit personal time to travel and provide assistance on behalf of seniors or persons with disabilities
  • Punctuality, good communication skills, tact, courtesy, compassion and emotional stability
  • Ability to work respectfully with a wide range of cultures and personalities

We do provide limited (25 cents per mile) reimbursement for miles driven.
