Become a Volunteer Driver, and give so much more than just a ride.
Older adults in our community who are no longer able to drive need your help! Become a volunteer driver for our JET Express program, and provide older adults with rides to medical appointments, hair salons, grocery stores, volunteer opportunities, anywhere that keeps older adults healthy, active, and independent. Giving rides keeps older adults safe and gives a valuable sense of community and independence.

- Choose when you drive, where you drive, and who you drive!
- Flexible commitment – drive as little as once a month!
