Description

Thousands of young Tulsans cannot get the help they need to succeed because they lack adequate transportation to get to clinics or social service agencies. Ultimately, this problem leads to decreased physical and mental health, poorer education outcomes, and lower employment rates compared to their peers who have reliable transportation.


How can you help?

Become a volunteer driver with Modus!


What will you do?

As a volunteer driver, you’ll use your own vehicle to take youth-aged clients, who were referred by one of our partner agencies, to and/or from their appointment safely and on-time.


Who will you help?

The youth we serve are ages 13-24, live in various zip codes we serve in Tulsa county, are clients of our partner agencies, and can be going to appointments for things like monthly youth leadership meetings, counseling, non-urgent medical appointments, WIC appointments, workforce training, tutoring, etc.


What’s in it for you?

+ A flexible schedule, where you, the volunteer, get to choose the ride(s) based on when you are free and able to do so. Most of our current volunteers choose rides that are on their way home from work or to wherever they're headed to next, so that's why the time to give a ride is so short!


+ You get reimbursed for mileage!


+ Opportunities to learn valuable skills related to not only this opportunity but potentially to other volunteer work you may do.


+ It’s a small commitment with a BIG impact and is perfect for those who have lots of time on their hands, those who are busy but still would like to help out their community, and everyone in between.


By becoming a volunteer driver, you're helping Modus remove the barrier of transportation for all young people in Tulsa, because the more volunteer drivers we have means the more youth we can serve!


Help us drive change in Tulsa!
