About the Position
Position #: 1744
OrganizationSou'West Nova Transit
Position: Volunteer Driver
Location: Shelburne, NS, Canada
Impact Statement: Access to affordable or subsidized transportation involves so much more than just moving people from one place to another. Supporting physical and mental health, reducing isolation, building networks and discovering options for funding and help, and assisting individuals in maintaining their independence and staying in their homes longer are just some of the ways that SWNT works toward our vision: to help create communities where everyone can access the services and opportunities they need to lead healthy, connected lives.
Description: Becoming a volunteer driver is a meaningful and fulfilling way to give back to the community! If you are a kind, positive, helpful person who is an excellent driver with a well-maintained vehicle, we'd love to talk with you about joining our team!

Volunteers use their own vehicles to help Shelburne County residents connect with essential services and their communities. They are reimbursed for mileage, parking, and meals, and have the flexibility to accept trips that fit with their schedules, whether that be several times a week or simply several times a year.

The greatest contributions of SWNT volunteers have very little to do with getting someone from Point-A to Point-B! It is the time spent in between that can be the most meaningful, for drivers and riders alike! As such, we look for team members that riders will love spending time with and getting to know!
Training Details: Training provided by our Volunteer and Rider Care Coordinator. Costs for required screening documents (driver's abstract, Criminal Record and Child Abuse Registry checks, etc.) will be reimbursed by the organization.
