Volunteer/Internship Program Agreement

As a volunteer or legal guardian of a volunteer, I agree to the following:

I shall hold as absolutely CONFIDENTIAL all information that I may obtain directly or indirectly concerning clients or staff, and not seek to obtain information from clients unless explicitly told to do so by my supervisor. I shall not solicit my political or religious beliefs to clients and/or their families.

My services are donated to the Concilio without contemplation of compensation or promise of future employment.

I shall not sell or attempt to sell goods or services, request contributions, or solicit persons to sign or distribute political petitions on Concilio property, or during my work at Concilio if off premises, unless I receive the express authorization of the Executive Director to engage in such activities.

I will work in a safe manner and follow all appropriate policies that Concilio employees must follow.

I shall make my best effort to fulfill my commitment to Concilio by completing all volunteer assignments that I accept.

I understand that I am not entitled to any unemployment benefits since I understand that I willfully donate my time as a volunteer.

I understand that the Concilio reserves the right to terminate my volunteer status as a result of:

(a) failure to comply with Concilio policy; (b) unsatisfactory attitude, or appearance; (c) any other circumstances which in judgment, or the Executive Director, would make my continued service as a volunteer contrary to the best interest of the Concilio.
