You can fulfill any and all of these when you join our Transportation Services program as one of our esteemed drivers. Our drivers connect people in Waukesha County to vital services, including medical, family visitation, educational, and more. These people have no transportation options, and need help getting to appointments.
This opportunity is very flexible. Drivers work with our coordinator to select clients that work best with their schedule and age preference. This can include driving the same person on to a weekly appointment, or driving new people each week, or as your schedule permits.
All clients are approved and referred for services. Clients oftentimes include children in foster care going to new schools; children in foster care visiting their biological parents in a supervised setting; youth completing wellness or independent living skills initiatives, adults going to medical appointments. We are especially in need of volunteers who feel comfortable driving children in the day or evenings, with children most in need ranging from 3 months to 6 years old. Want to volunteer with a buddy? We welcome partners, spouses, or friends to volunteer for this together!
Mileage reimbursement, flexible scheduling, ongoing training and support, and gratitude from clients included. You choose your own schedule, and will be reimbursed for your mileage. Opportunities are available Monday-Friday, including weekday and some evenings. We provide car seats or booster seats as needed and will install them in your car. Our drivers have very flexible schedules.
This is the perfect opportunity to truly make a difference in another person’s life and have fun doing it!
