    Safe Ride

    Without the help of much needed volunteers, Safe Ride would be unable to assist their average of 60 riders a night move safely and securely through the streets of Eugene.

    Volunteering is a great opportunity to learn the streets of Eugene and to get to know some new people. You can even volunteer with a friend and schedule some quality time together each week.
     
    Volunteer Drivers and Navigators are asked to commit to one 2 to 2 1/2 hour shift, once per week, for at least one term. If you cannot commit this much time or are interested in other forms of volunteering, such as educating or advertising, contact us and we'll work something out. Out coordinators are always happy to hear suggestions!
