Road

Even the best treatment can’t work if a patient can’t get there. That’s why a successful transportation assistance program can be a tremendous, potentially life-saving asset to your community.

To volunteer, what do you need?

If you own or have regular access to a safe, reliable vehicle, then you’re already on the road to volunteering. But you’ll also need:

  • A good driving record
  • A current, valid driver’s license
  • Proof of adequate automobile insurance
  • Completion of the American Cancer Society training courses
  • Regular access to a computer, laptop, smart phone or tablet computer
  • Schedule availability, typically Monday-Saturday
  • Covid-19 vaccination
