Description

The Problem: 6,000 Tulsa teens cannot access the important medical and social services they need because they do not have transportation.

That's 6,000 teens who suffer with decreased physical and mental health, who could end up having poorer educational outcomes and lower employment rates due to their decreased abilities, when that doesn't have to be the case at all.

 

The Solution: We are ModusModus is a volunteer-based transportation service that ensures teens get to their health and social service appointments consistently, on-time and safely, so all teens can access the services necessary to reach their full potential. 



Modus is currently looking for passionate community drivers who are willing to use their own vehicle to help Tulsa teens get to and from their appointments. We rely on our enthusiastic volunteers to help us void the transportation barrier between Tulsa's youth and getting to their essential medical & social services needs.


We offer a flexible schedule, where you, the volunteer, gets to choose the ride(s) based on when you are free and able to do so. Scheduled rides take place anytime between 8:00AM and 8:00PM, Monday-Thursday, with most rides taking 15-25 minutes from pick-up to drop-off location + the time to get to pick-up location.


We also offer opportunities for training sessions to learn valuable skills to not only this opportunity but potentially to other volunteer work you may do.


Come be apart of a team that's dedicated to helping young Tulsans get to necessary appointments so they can be great citizens. Such a small commitment with a big impact. Only you can drive change.
