Volunteer Training Schedule

December 7, 2010

Ready to hit the road for a good cause? For many people, the holiday season means parties and family activities. But for a senior without a ride or an adult with visual impairments, the holiday season can be frustrating and isolating-with no way to reach fun or even necessary medical appointments. Help make the holidays accessible as a volunteer driver.

At the training session, the benefits of volunteering will be explained, which include a free ITNGreaterCincinnati membership to give to someone plus options on what to do with mileage earned. The best benefit, though, is the good feeling volunteers get by helping others remain active and independent.

Below is a list of upcoming Volunteer Driver trainings for December. Other schedules can be accommodated.

Sessions:

Thursday, December 9, 2010; 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
Goetz Building, 415 Straight St.- Clifton

Monday, December 13, 2010; 3:30 PM – 5:00 PM
Goetz Building, 415 Straight St.- Clifton

All trainings are in the conference room of ITNGreaterCincinnati, first floor of the Goetz Building. Park in the open lot across from the Goetz Building or the parking garage.

Please email info@ITNGreaterCincinnati.org
or call 513-559-2200 with questions or to reserve your space. Attending does not obligate you to drive.
