I understand that I am responsible to complete at least 100 documented hours of volunteer service at my assigned MultiCare location before I am eligible to have my community service paperwork and evaluation signed off; even if 100 hours is more than my school or other program requires of me.
I understand I am committing to a shift of 3-4 hours 1 day a week. If I am unable to make my assigned schedule I will call or email my department and/or volunteer coordinator at least 24 hours prior to my assigned shift. Two no call/no shows will result in removal of my name from the schedule.
Upon reaching the end of my volunteer experience I will contact the volunteer office at 253-697-1568 or 253-403-2074 or email my coordinator to let them know I am no longer able to volunteer.
Upon reaching the end of my volunteer experience I am responsible for returning my badge back to the volunteer office. I understand that should I not return my badge at the end of my volunteering there is a $25.00 fee.
I understand that should I report for my volunteer shift without my badge I will be sent home to retrieve my badge. I further understand there is a $25.00 fee charged to replace a lost, stolen or damaged badge.
I understand that if I want to receive a letter indicating my number of hours completed, have any school related paperwork signed or have references provided by the volunteer office I must make an email request at least one week in advance of when it will be needed. I also understand that the request cannot be made until I have completed the 100 hour commitment.
I understand I am allowing MultiCare volunteer services to complete any and all necessary background checks required by their policies in order to be considered for a volunteer placement.
I understand I am allowing MultiCare volunteer services to take and use my photograph for the purposes of my volunteer badge and that this picture will also appear in the employee/volunteer directory.
I understand I must complete any and all required immunizations necessary for my volunteer placement. I further understand that there can be no exceptions made for these immunizations as they protect not only me but the staff, patients, visitors, families and community members I may come into contact with while volunteering.
If at any time I am no longer able to follow the terms of my volunteer commitment, I will relinquish my volunteer position and alert my volunteer coordinator or other volunteer services staff member.
