Volunteer Drivers

The ideal applicant for this position has extra time on their hands and desires to use that time in service to seniors and vision impaired adults in Detroit area communities. This is a volunteer position, which includes a mileage reimbursement of $0.75 per occupied mile for those drivers who request it. Schedules are very flexible, allowing drivers to provide as many or as few rides as desired, based on available ride requests.
