Volunteering for WeCAB

WeCAB can only exist and serve people if people volunteer! Neighbors helping Neighbors. Volunteering for WeCAB is so simple and flexible and volunteers are ALWAYS needed!

Volunteer positions include:

  • Rider Registrars
  • Dispatchers
  • Drivers
  • Office Help

Volunteers who wish to meet people who need a little help with transportation might want to consider becoming a RIDER REGISTRAR.  Rider Registrars set up their own appointments with prospective WeCAB riders.  After a prospective rider calls and asks to register, the Rider Registrar contacts the rider within a week.

People can volunteer from home if they choose to help DISPATCH.  People can choose their time and days on which to volunteer.  People can even volunteer when they are traveling in the United States.  This helps because a number of WeCAB volunteers are “snow birds”.

“Your service has made a difference in my life.  Without WeCAB, I don’t know what I would do. My stress level is lower and I have met some wonderful WeCAB people. Thank you so much for your service. I hope that when I can drive again, I can volunteer with WeCAB.”  -Carver County WeCAB Rider 1/2/17

Volunteer DRIVERS use their personal vehicle to provide transportation when they want to drive on the day(s) and time(s) they are available to drive.  Drivers do not need to set a schedule; each driver decides when and where they want to drive; drivers schedules are completely at the drivers’ discretion.  Drivers can request mileage reimbursement at the current non-profit rate OR drivers can take a tax deduction for the amount.

Dispatchers and the Drivers are supported by a computer program called the Ride Scheduler, which enables WeCAB volunteers maximum flexibility.

Volunteers are also needed on an “on call” basis to help with OFFICE DUTIES.  WeCAB mails contribution invoices each month to riders and occasionally has other mailings that need to be organized and mailed.  If you like to design brochures or are particularly adept at technology, WeCAB is a place where you can use your talents.

WeCAB is a flexible organization and depends almost entirely on volunteers to provide transportation services.

Training is provided for all volunteers!
