Minor Policy

We have an open campus with people from all walks of life: the safety of our volunteers, especially youth, is of the utmost importance to us.

• Minors must be at least age 12 to volunteer.

• Minors ages 12-15 MUST be accompanied by a supervising adult at all times while volunteering; this adult must also complete an Individual Volunteer Application and be scheduled in advance through the online system.

• Minors ages 16-17 may volunteer on their own if they have a vehicle that remains on campus for the duration of their service. If minors are unable to supply their own vehicle, they must serve with a supervising adult.

Statement of Confidentiality

Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada (CCSN) requires that strict confidentiality be maintained with respect to all information obtained by volunteers concerning the organization, as well as the clients and others they serve. The volunteer shall not disclose any information obtained in the course of his/her volunteer placement to any third parties without prior written consent from CCSN. This includes but is not limited to information pertaining to financial status and operations such as budget information, donations of money or gifts in kind, salary information, and information pertaining to clients, staff or other volunteers. Failure to comply with the confidentially policies of the organization may result in disciplinary actions, including but not limited to the dismissal of the volunteer. I understand the above and agree to uphold the confidentiality of these matters both during and following my volunteer service with CCSN.

Client Consideration

In the course of spending time at Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada (CCSN), you will meet a rich variety of people, including volunteers, clients, and CCSN employees. We encourage and support positive interactions among these groups while on our campus or other CCSN work locations – this is part of what makes spending time here a great experience! However, due to the vulnerability of our client base and out of an abundance of caution, we do not permit outside fraternization (e.g., romantic relationships, side work, etc.) beyond the course and scope of the services you are providing. Please note that CCSN does not make any representations about individual volunteers or clients, and does not endorse any further relationships outside of the agency that are not organized by CCSN.
