Do you want to make a difference in the lives of seniors and the less abled individuals in return for personal satisfaction and fulfillment? We often take for granted the simple freedom of getting outside and enjoying our beautiful town. Many seniors and less abled individuals do not have this freedom, confined to their homes or care facilities, unable to be an active part of their community.
We recruit volunteers to be the drivers, or “pilots” as they are referred to. Rides will generally be 60 – 90 minutes long. The rides are not about going fast or far. You are able to volunteer as little or as much time as you wish. The trishaws have electric assist drive so a high level of fitness is not mandatory.
We will provide all the training you need, you just need to bring a smile, some energy and fun to ride the trishaw!
You can give the opportunity for someone to feel the wind in their hair, to experience our beautiful scenery and lively city, or to share a story that is prompted while on the trishaw. We believe that we build bridges between generations and we reinforce trust, respect and the social glue in our society
