Volunteers accepted to the Giving Is Good (GIG) program will be required to behave in accordance with the following standards:
- Attire should adhere to typical school dress code standards (i.e., clothing should not impede one's ability to move comfortably and safely, but should also provide complete coverage with any movement such as bending over or reaching up)
- Volunteers are expected to serve all assigned shifts. If a volunteer misses more than 2 shifts with less than 24 hours notice or with no notice, participation will be terminated.
- Volunteers MUST NOT pick up or move any child for any reason. This can cause injury to the volunteer or to the child - a staff member should be notified immediately in all circumstances if assistance is needed.
- Volunteers are expected to be engaged with class/volunteer activities throughout assigned shifts. Volunteers MUST place cell phones in an assigned location in the classroom office at the beginning of a shift and only retrieve it at the end of the shift (unless an emergency situation is discussed with the teacher at the beginning of a shift).
- If a volunteer is instructed to put away their phone more than once during a shift, they will be required to leave their assigned class/office post for the rest of the shift.
- If phone usage during a shift is a continued issue, it will be grounds for termination from the program.
- Volunteers and family members are REQUIRED to adhere to HIPAA confidentiality regulations. No pictures may be made of or with any child or adult participants of United Ability nor may names, health information, or other personal details be shared.
- Volunteers accepted into the program MUST attend one of the two scheduled orientation sessions and remit payment of a $20 participation fee at that time.
