Volunteer Code of Conduct
If you are thinking you’d like to become a volunteer here’s an idea of what you’re getting involved in. It’s really just some high-level guidance on how we see these roles. Volunteers are encouraged to add their own flair and glitter to make their experience fun and worthwhile.
We’re very much a self-organising team, which means that you use your own best judgement a lot of the time and only ask for permission in exceptional cases. All this freedom and flexibility works very well for most people, but some freak out at first when they find that we don’t have a hefty manual, a book of legal documents (sign in blood here) and a code of conduct that feels like a 24/7 straight jacket.
That being said, we don’t have any “rules” per se-rules, but we do have a few operating principles. These are meant as guidelines and can be discussed or changed at all times. We’ve found they hold up quite well over time.
Volunteers commitment to each other
- If you’re not having fun, something is wrong, so speak up.
- Do good things that make you proud.
- Need help? Just ask for it. If you can offer help, offer it.
- Want to spend money, talk to the money person.
- Have a great idea? We want to hear it.
- Give only as much time as you can afford, no more.
- Be yourself and let others do the same
- Be clear on why you want to contribute; and let the rest of the team know.
Volunteers commitment to our members
- We have some Change Community Hub Guidelines, Policies and Procedures and I will abide by them for the good of everyone.
- I respect the confidentiality and privacy of all Change Community Hub members, including member contact information.
- Conflicts of interest (real or apparent) are shared with the Leadership Team and we avoid them wherever possible. As a team we do good things and always comply with legislation.
- The information, materials or authority I have in my role as a Volunteer are to be used for good not evil.
