Driver Volunteer   Burlington  Halton Hills  Milton  Oakville 
Halton Children's Aid Society, Burlington Office
Milton and Halton Hills
Our Volunteer drivers play an extremely valuable role in the lives of our children in care. As a driver, you become a familiar and friendly face the children can depend on, someone who will listen to their stories and bring a smile to their faces at what can be a very confusing time in their lives.  
 
If you have a few hours to spare a week, enjoy driving and love children then this is the volunteer role for you. Volunteer drivers take children and on occasion parents, to various appointments: therapy sessions, family visits, counselling sessions, court dates, support groups, and other important meetings.  
 
Drivers are currently needed during day time hours. Some do a specific drive or two each week, others are called upon on a daily basis and yet others do once a month. We are always in need of reliable, readily available volunteer drivers.
