Volunteer Agreement

**REQUIRED READING!**


While some agencies may place volunteers in supplementary service roles, FCSW volunteers are the PRIMARY service providers. More than 600 active volunteers provide nearly all patient services, every year. As such, volunteers should be aware that their attendance at scheduled shifts is more critical than might otherwise be the case.


As a volunteer at Free Clinic of SW Washington I agree to:

* Honor the service commitment I make.

* Report on time for any scheduled shift.

* Notify my work supervisor ASAP if I cannot attend my scheduled shift.

* Comply with Free Clinic policies, programs and objectives.

* Respect FCSW employees and volunteer staff.

* Respect and maintain confidentiality in regard to personal and medical information of patients.

* Provide services with courtesy and respect to all patients.

* Communicate without delay any incidents, concerns, or disputes to the program lead staff person, or the volunteer manager.


The Free Clinic of SW Washington agrees to provide orientation, training and support to all new volunteers, as well as respect, support, and recognition of their efforts.


I CERTIFY that all statements I have made on my application are true and correct and I hereby authorize Free Clinic of SW Washington to investigate the accuracy of this information. I understand that I am working at all times on a voluntary basis, without monetary compensation or benefits, and not as a paid employee. As a Free Clinic of SW Washington volunteer, I give the Free Clinic permission to use my name with any photographs or videos made of me during my service without obligation or compensation to me and in such manner and at such times and in such places as Free Clinic of SW Washington, without restriction, at its sole discretion, shall determine. I understand that Free Clinic of SW Washington reserves the right to terminate a volunteer's services at any time.
