Love to drive? Have a safe driver record, a 2006 (or newer) vehicle, and enjoy helping seniors? This volunteer opportunity is for YOU! Neighborly has strict safety protocols for all drivers to keep them, and Neighborly clients, safe.

Volunteer Duties:

Transportation volunteers deliver clients to and from medical appointments and pharmacies (up to ten miles from the client’s home, one way). Choose one weekday or more in a region of the county. Earliest client pickup begins at 8:45 for a 9:30 appointment, and trips must be completed by 4pm for safety reasons. Volunteers use their own vehicle and generally serve between two and four hours a week (but can do more).

Volunteer Requirements:

  • Attend Neighborly orientation and complete all required documentation and annual retraining as required by our funders
  • Pass a Level II background screening
  • Pass a drug test
  • Pass a motor vehicle check
  • Attend Neighborly’s driver training
  • Provide proof of auto insurance coverage (minimum coverage levels of $100,000/$300,000)
  • Proficiency with their own smartphone/use of Neighborly app (training provided)
  • Optional: CPR/First Aid certification (Neighborly will provide this at no charge to volunteers 2x a year)
Vehicle Requirements:
  • Vehicle must be at most 15 years old or younger (the model year should be 2006 or newer)
  • Must seat four or more passengers including the driver
  • Must be a 4-door car, truck, or minivan
  • Must have the driver’s name on the vehicle’s insurance, however, the driver’s name does not need to be on the registration of the vehicle
  • Vehicle must pass a Neighborly vehicle inspection (pass/fail)

Exclusions: Neighborly does not allow use of these vehicles:

  • A full-sized van (i.e. Sprinter)
  • A taxi, decommissioned police car, or another marked vehicle
