BHS JET EXPRESS DRIVER @ JEWISH FAMILY SERVICES Jewish Family Services

Got a car? Give an Older Adult Ride!

Looking for a way to make a real difference in someone's life? Become a Volunteer Driver with JET Express, and give aging seniors the gift of mobility and independence.

As a Volunteer Driver, you help older adults get to where they need to go: medical appointments, grocery stores, banks - some even need rides to their own volunteer opportunities! Giving rides to non-driving older adults helps keep them safe on the road and active in the community. Our volunteers also love the friendships that develop with the older adults they assist. Requirements include: 

  • Must be at least 21 years old
  • Have a clean background check and motor vehicle report
  • Have a reliable vehicle
  • Proof of insurance

Our volunteer drivers only give rides when they have the time. We offer easy online self-scheduling that allows you to choose when, where, and who you drive. Our service area includes Johnson and South Jackson County, and most rides average less than 10 miles.  Drivers also get reimbursed for gas used while driving!

You can make a life-changing difference for older adults who want to live independently. To get more information about this great opportunity, please contact us today at jwilliams@jfskc.org or (913) 730-1419.

Orientations are held several times each month with both morning and evening times, and they last for approximately one hour.  Please contact Jackie Williams for a list of upcoming trainings.
