Seattle Area Caregivers: Become a HopSkipDrive CareDriver

Caregivers in Seattle: Do you have experience as a parent, teacher, counselor, nurse, social worker, nanny, babysitter or as a primary caregiver for a family member? Are you looking for part-time, flexible — and rewarding — work in the Seattle area? Become a HopSkipDrive CareDriver, and you’ll have the opportunity to set your own schedule and earn extra income while making a positive impact in your community. As an innovative transportation solution focused on creating opportunity for all through mobility, HopSkipDrive arranges safe, reliable rides for students and vulnerable residents in a variety of cities across the country. Safety is at the forefront of everything we do, which is one reason why five years of caregiving experience is required for CareDrivers to gain access to the HopSkipDrive platform.  Around 27% of HopSkipDrive CareDrivers come from education backgrounds, while many have worked with children in another capacity (such as working as a nurse or a social worker). Eighty percent of CareDrivers are parents, and 74% of CareDrivers are female. 

Because our transportation solution serves populations (such as children and older adults) that require a little extra care, caregivers are uniquely qualified to become CareDrivers.

The empathy, understanding and knowledge that caregivers have enable them to provide a positive experience. 

As students go back to school across the country, school districts are struggling with severe bus driver shortages exacerbated by COVID-19. This unfortunate situation has left students in the greater Seattle area in need of help getting to and from school, appointments and extracurricular activities. 

Caregivers in Seattle who are interested in making some money in their spare time may be uniquely positioned to be part of the solution by becoming a HopSkipDrive CareDriver
