DutiesOur Volunteer drivers play an extremely valuable role in the lives of our children in care. As a driver you become a familiar and friendly face the children can depend on, someone who will listen to their stories and bring a smile to their faces at what can be a very confusing time in their lives.  
 
If you have a few hours to spare a week, enjoy driving and love children then this is the volunteer role for you. Volunteer drivers take children and on occasion parents, to various appointments; therapy sessions, family visits, counselling sessions, court dates, support groups, and other important meetings.  
 
Drivers are currently needed during day time hours. Some do a specific drive or two each week, others are called upon on a daily basis and yet others do once a month. We are always in need of reliable, readily available volunteer drivers.
