WiseUp: WiseUp – Aging with Attitude ~ Volunteer Driver


About this Opportunity

Following the lead of other Villages in the country, WiseUp’s volunteer services will be adjusted to essential shopping, grocery and prescription pickup/delivery only.  All non-essential services will be curtailed until further notice, pending guidance from IDPH.


Are you interested in helping older adults be able to continue to live independently in their homes and feel connected to the community they live in? If so, we would love to have you be a vital part of our organization! WiseUp needs volunteer drivers to provide transportation for medical appointments, grocery shopping, social/educational events or other errands.

Volunteer drivers pick up our Villagers, drive them to their destination, and return them to their homes. Drivers are needed for regularly scheduled trips and periodic trips. When appropriate, the volunteer driver will assist the member to and from the door of his or her house or apartment, and help them carry packages.

Flexible Scheduling We are so appreciative of our volunteers and we understand scheduling can be tricky sometimes. To that end, we work around your schedule. Also keep in mind, you only have to accept the driving opportunities which work with your schedule. You can commit to a regular weekly driving commitment or choose to pick-up opportunities as they come up.

What do you need? If you own or have regular access to a safe, reliable vehicle, then you’re already on the road to volunteering. You’ll also need:

What is our organization all about? WiseUp, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is a part of the growing nationwide “village” movement designed to support older adults in living independently in their homes. WiseUp’s mission is to help members feel like they are connected, active, contributing members of their community.
