Volunteer Driver Program

The Volunteer Driver Program is a supportive program for adults (18+) living in Okotoks who require assistance with transportation to appointments. Volunteer drivers provide safe, free and reliable transportation for residents who would otherwise struggle to meet this need. It is a somewhat flexible  opportunity, as volunteers can work the drives around their schedules. 

In 2016, volunteer drivers logged over 20,000 km driving grateful residents to appointments!

The Program Benefits Two Groups:

Volunteer drivers understand that their involvement fills a need in the community, which is why some have been with the program from its inception in 1992. 
Residents have improved quality of life when: 
  • the stress associated with arranging transportation is alleviated
  • connections to others in the community are built 
  • long lasting relationships with volunteer drivers are formed
