Do you love kids? Do you love the theater? Then Project SUCCESS has the right volunteer opportunity for you! We have many volunteer opportunities. One of the key roles for Project SUCCESS is the volunteer driver, which helps Project SUCCESS fulfill our promise that all students have the opportunity to attend live theater, whether they have access to transportation or not.
Volunteer Drivers Needed!
Project SUCCESS promises all of its students the opportunity to attend live theater, whether they have transportation or not. Volunteer drivers play a critical role in allowing us to fulfill this promise.
Volunteer drivers pick up students and families at their homes and drop them off after the show. In between, our volunteers join with our Project SUCCESS families to experience an evening of theater together.

A Rewarding Experience:
"Being a volunteer for Project SUCCESS is one of the most satisfying volunteer opportunities for me. I like connecting with students during the drive to events and sitting with them. Sometimes it is just one or two students, sometimes it is a whole family. It has been interesting to meet students/families of various nationalities and cultures. We are all part of the Northside Minneapolis neighborhood, so it is good to meet the kids who will be tomorrow’s adults in my area. I try to bring a positive experience into their lives, sitting with me as an adult, having conversation, and sometimes seeing them dressing up for a special play or event. I have to say I have been quite by surprised by each and every student I have met. I think they are going to be quiet, or bored ... yet every time I see them enjoy something 'new', and they open up, we have some wonderful conversations. They are as surprised by me as I am by them. Project SUCCESS is something special in ALL of our lives." - Lynne Young, Volunteer Driver
