SideKicks are the ride-along volunteers that help keep SafeRide operating. Without SideKicks, SafeRide is unable to operate the On-Call portion of the night. There's just too much going on for one driver to be able to safely operate the van alone. Registered Student Organizations (RSOs) may volunteer to act as SideKicks.

Help keep passengers safe and help enforce the policies of SafeRide (under the direction of the driver)
Talk with the passengers and ensure everyone enjoys the SafeRide Program
SideKicks are picked up by a SafeRide driver shortly after 10:00 pm, for the next several hours they help transport 50-100 passengers safely around town. The Dispatcher stops taking calls at 2:00 am signaling the final stretch of the night. SafeRide continues to provide rides to passengers waiting at the various bars in the downtown area until everyone who wants a ride gets home safely. SideKicks are generally dropped back off at their homes at around 2:30-3:00 am.
Adopt-a-Night for the 2012 Fall Semester will start taking reservations 2 weeks before the semester begins. Through the SideKick RSO Incentive Program, University of Wyoming official RSOs have the opportunity to earn $100 per Thursday, Friday, and/or Saturday evening for providing an adequate number of SideKicks for SafeRide. In order to earn the full amount of the money, RSOs must follow through in providing 70% of all SideKicks to the program for the full evening, as outlined below.

If the above requirements are not completed, then the RSOs earned monies will be adjusted accordingly. Final decisions regarding this procedure will be made by the SafeRide Student Coordinator and the ASUW Business Office Associate.
