Sunrise Volunteer Commitment

As a volunteer, I agree to:

...be respectful and kind to my peers, managers, other volunteers, visitors and clients while on property
...respect the privacy of persons served by Sunrise and hold in confidence sensitive, private, and personal information. Remember that client stories are their’s to tell, not mine to tell.
...not give clients money or rides while on volunteer time at Sunrise
...go get a staff member if an interaction with a client escalates and I need help
...follow through and complete accepted tasks, dress in attire that is appropriate for the job and environment, and be prepared for my shift.
...contact the volunteer coordinator as soon as I know I cannot make my shift. Keeping the shifts staffed fully prevents burnout in my fellow volunteers.
...keep personal opinions and actions separate from those made as a representative of this organization.
...be neutral on matters of religion and refrain from promoting religious or political viewpoints in
interacting with clients, other volunteers and staff.
...maintain appropriate boundaries with clients, staff and other volunteers.
...have fun, make jokes, enjoy myself and get to know my peers as I work!
