Shuttle Driving:

Student Involvement & Leadership Programs (SILP) is looking for local students that are interested in being shuttle drivers for the upcoming Fall break, Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks, as well as spring and Easter break next semester.  You must be a licensed driver and willing to apply to get on the Messiah College approved drivers list (for cars and minivans only).  This is not a big time commitment and works well for local / commuter students who generally don’t travel out of town for holidays (although if you that’s not a problem!).  More information or to apply can be found here: or contact Sheryl Ezbiansky at
