IMPORTANT! To ensure the safety of our children and staff, applicants must be 18 years of age and are subject to a background check.
Many of the kids who come to Rock House Kids live in areas that are prone to crime and other unsafe activities. Our drivers must be able and willing to pick up in inner-city areas and housing projects. We use large passenger vans to pick up and drop off kids each night.
To be one of our van drivers, you will need a current driver’s license. A firm, influential approach is ideal. Former bus drivers are perfect for this job!
As with our other Rock House Kids volunteers, our drivers share our vision of providing a safe place, in this case, transportation, while being a positive and Godly role model for the children.
Drivers arrive at RHK no later than 4:45 PM for pick up and finish by 8:30 PM after drop offs at the end of the night Monday through Thursday. Drivers are needed all four nights. We will work with you to determine the night/nights that work best with your schedule. If possible, we ask our drivers to plan to come back to RHK between pick-up and drop offs, just to hangout with the kids. This will help in building trust-based relationships with them.
If you are interested in helping transport our kids, please review our Statement of Faith, then complete our application and return it to us. Upon completion of a background screen, we will contact you to set up a short orientation meeting.
