SEEKING VOLUNTEER CLINIC DRIVERS!

Are you interested in helping out at the Oberlin Sexual Information Center (SIC), without necessarily becoming a staffer? Becoming a volunteer driver is a great way to get involved with a low time-commitment. Lack of reliable transportation is one of the BIGGEST barriers to sexual/reproductive healthcare access. Even just a few hours per month would be an incredible help to our organization!

Volunteer drivers will drive people to and from their sexual/reproductive health appointments. Destinations may include clinics in Elyria, Lorain, or Cleveland. Volunteer drivers commit to maintaining confidentiality, and providing non-judgmental support during transportation.
