Since 2013, DENC has cultivated a solid volunteer base through the EV Enthusiast group. Made up of EV owners and advocates, these volunteers are great at talking to people about EVs, and possess a wealth of knowledge on the subject. In DENC Ride and Drives, these volunteers have been an incredibly valuable asset, helping consumers to dispel myths about EVs, and teaching them about the technology and user experience.
Typically, a Ride and Drive event requires 3-4 people to attend to the booth and sign-in table, encouraging passers-by to test drive EVs and helping educate them on the subject. Additionally, co-pilots are needed for each available vehicle. For example, if you have 4 vehicles at your event, you need 4 co-pilots to ride along with the test driver and any other passengers. These volunteers demonstrate how to operate the vehicle, and point out features during the test drive.
If you need volunteers to support your event, please contact Calvin Holic at firstname.lastname@example.org and he can get you the entire contact list of our over 100 volunteers and enthusiasts.
