HelpBerkeley: COVID-19

Aberger driver

Hi @aberger, welcome to HelpBerkeley.org and thanks very much for volunteering!

Our dispatchers have made you a driver, so now you can access the driver-only subcategories (subcats) on the website.

The next driver training sessions, on Zoom, are listed on this thread: https://go.helpberkeley.org/t/new-driver-training-this-week/874. Can you reply to the thread and let us know which session you will attend?

Until then, here is a link to the core information required for drivers to ramp up:

(only clickable by drivers) . Let us know if you have any questions!

Thank you for again for volunteering your time with us, we’re glad to have you on board!

@aberger, it is great to see you join us! There are driver orientation sessions this Sat at 11:00am, and next Tuesday at 11:00am and 4:00pm: can you make either of these dates and times?

We also have an all-volunteer meeting this Sunday at 4:00pm that you may be interested in attending!

@aberger We’re hoping you still want to drive for us! If so, you need to schedule your training. If not, that’s fine, of course! Could you let us know by replying to this message? Then we won’t contact you again.

Thanks a lot for volunteering to drive with us!

You need to attend a new driver training (~80 minutes long) before starting to drive with HelpBerkeley. We are delighted to offer a good number of new driver training sessions this upcoming week; I know everyone has a time that works best for them so there are quite a few options to choose from. Almost all of them will be led by our very own @MichelThouati.

  • Saturday 2/6 at 11:00am
  • Tuesday 2/9 at 11:00am
  • Tuesday 2/9 at 4:00pm
  • Tuesday 2/9 at 8:00pm (needs to be pre-scheduled with @MichelThouati)
  • Thursday 2/11 at 11:00am
  • Thursday 2/11 at 2:00pm

Please reply to this thread to confirm which training you can make! If there is not much demand, we might even get away with canceling some of the proposed times.

It is helpful to read this thread and its links before attending:https://go.helpberkeley.org/t/new-driver-welcome-please-read-this/66

Before attending the meeting:

  • please log into the HelpBerkeley.org website with a computer prior to entering the Zoom meeting

Information about zoom meetings (i.e. the links) will be posted in this thread a short time before the start time, so keep an eye on this thread. Any questions, don’t hesitate to tag either a driver coordinator (by putting @ sign and followed by , for instance, MiaJeffery (Mia), Leonardo (Leo), or NicoRiecher (Nico); @Miajeffery, @Leonardo, or @NicoReicher) or Michel @MichelThouati.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
