GROUP VOLUNTEER POLICY

Please make certain you have read and agree to following before signing.


Groups accepted for volunteer placement will be sent a Group Volunteer Agreement defining the volunteer project(s) prior to the start date of the stated project(s).


• Volunteers agree to perform service without compensation and are not considered employees of the State of South Carolina. As such, the Anne Springs Close Greenway does not provide Worker’s Compensation or any other insurance coverage for volunteers.


• Group Volunteers must identify a Group Contact prior to the start of a project who will serve responsible for the safety and well-being of all group members. The group contact agrees to:


1. Provide coordination and supervision for group while volunteering.


2. Ensure all members adhere to park rules, regulations, and procedures.


3. Report to the Anne Springs Close Greenway with any behavior, actions, or language inappropriate for the established activity, location, or group which may endanger the health and/or well-being of the individual, other group members, or Greenway visitors.


• Volunteer Opportunities for youth aged 18 years and younger are governed by applicable child labor laws. A responsible adult must accompany volunteers under the age of 18 at all times during the stated period of service work, after the aforesaid individual has presented the Group Contact with a signed Parental Consent Form, which must remain on file with the Group Coordinator prior to and during the under-aged individuals period of service.


• The Anne Springs Close Greenway accepts the service of all volunteers with the understanding that approval for such service is at the sole discretion of the Greenway. The Greenway makes every effort to match volunteer applicants to volunteer opportunities according to the needs of the Greenway and the interests and availability of the volunteer(s). The Greenway further reserves the right to withhold any such reason(s) for refusal from the individual or group.


• Volunteers agree that the Greenway may at any time, for any reason, decide to terminate the volunteer’s relationship with the Greenway. Volunteers may at any time, for any reason, decide to sever the volunteer’s relationship with the Greenway. Notice of such a decision should be communicated as soon as possible to the volunteer’s coordinator.


I have read the above policy and understand the risks involved in being a volunteer for the Anne Springs Close Greenway. I further understand that transportation to and from project sites may or may not be provided by Greenway employees who are fully trained to operate Greenway vehicles. I understand that the Anne Springs Close Greenway will assume any financial liability for any injury or illness that I, or any member in attendance with me, might incur while performing voluntary service for the Anne Springs Close Greenway.
