This Volunteer Policy and Agreement serves as an agreement between myself and the Skid Row Housing Trust (“SRHT”). In exchange for the opportunity to volunteer, I understand and agree to the following terms.
I agree to hold as absolutely confidential and/or sensitive information which I may obtain directly, or indirectly concerning SRHT, its residents, and staff (including employees and volunteers). I agree to grant permission to SRHT, its constituents and affiliates, to use my name, voice, statements, photographs, and other reproductions and likeness for promotional purposes (e.g. press releases, media interviews, audio/visual and printed materials). I further agree to comply with the policies and procedures in all areas of SRHT. I understand that my volunteer status may be terminated at will at any time and for any reason including, but not limited to, for example, failure to comply with SRHT’s policies and procedures, unsatisfactory attitude, work, or appearance, and/or for any other circumstances which in the sole judgment of SRHT would make my continued service as a volunteer contrary to SRHT’s best interests. I agree that my services are donated to SRHT without contemplation of compensation, or future employment. I understand and acknowledge that I am not an employee of SRHT; I do not have any expectation that I will be paid and will not be paid for the time I devote to the volunteer event.
I expressly acknowledge and understand that participation in any volunteer event, assignments and activities may expose me to a possible risk of personal injury. I understand that my attendance and participation in such activities is completely voluntary. Being fully aware of the risks involved in such activities, I hereby agree to fully accept any and all risk of injury and illness that may result from my participation in the volunteer event. I hereby fully release SRHT, its officers, directors, teachers, employees, representatives, agents, and affiliates (“Releasees”) from any and all liability from property damage, personal injuries, and/or other claims arising out of my connection with, attendance, and participation in any of the volunteer events, assignments and activities, including all claims that are known and unknown, unforeseen and foreseen, future or contingent. I also agree that I will not now, or in the future, either directly or indirectly commence or prosecute any action, suit, or other legal proceeding against Releasees related to my participation in any volunteer events.
I HEREBY ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE READ SKID ROW HOUSING TRUST’S VOLUNTEER POLICY & AGREEMENT AND UNDERSTAND AND AGREE TO THE SAME.
