Morning Volunteer Van Driver

Save to Favorites

The Nest Academy

  • 3 people are interested

The Nest Academy is seeking a cheerful, special individual to provide transportation to school each day for our amazing students!! This is a very special NEED, as the van ride to and from school has been one of our students favorite experiences. This would also be the first person our students see each day! We are seeking an awesome Volunteer to share an hour in the mornings and/or an hour in the afternoons. Dependent on availability, this could be one specific day per week or all five days of the week. The Nest Academy has a 15 passenger van (provided). Volunteer/Candidate would arrive at the academy and then drive the van to pickup of students within 5 miles of the academy and drop the students off and the van again. The hours are 8:00 am to 9:30 am with 2 groups. It is a wonderful opportunity to impact students lives and invest in them each day!

We do practice safety procedures due to COVID with masks, sanitization, and cleaning. If you or someone you know can rotate or even volunteer each week please reach out to us. To learn more about our mission please go to www.thenestacademy.org
