Volunteer Handbook Acknowledgment

I acknowledge receipt of the Community Center of Northern Westchester (“the Center “) Volunteer Policy and Procedure Handbook (“the Volunteer Handbook”).  I acknowledge that the Volunteer Handbook supersedes any and all prior handbooks or policies of the Center.  I understand that the information contained in the Volunteer Handbook constitutes management guidelines only, which may be added to, deleted, or changed from time to time at the discretion of the Center. 

I recognize that neither the Volunteer Handbook nor any other communication, either written or oral, made at the time of the commencement of volunteer work, or subsequently, is intended to in any way create a contract between the Center and myself. I understand that my volunteerism is at-will and entered into voluntarily and may be terminated by the Center or me at any time, with or without cause or notice. 

I acknowledge that I have read or will read the Volunteer Handbook, and I accept full responsibility for familiarizing myself with the policies contained in the Volunteer Handbook. 

I understand that volunteer services at CCNW may involve work that may be hazardous to me, including, but not limited to, lifting and carrying heavy items.  I understand that it is my responsibility not to engage in volunteer tasks that are beyond my physical limitations or abilities.

I acknowledge that the Center does not conduct comprehensive background checks on volunteers.

If I have any questions regarding the content or interpretation of the Volunteer Handbook, I agree to bring it to the attention of the Volunteer Coordinator.

This Handbook is intended to provide you with information about CCNW policies and practices currently in force.  No Handbook can anticipate every circumstance or question about policy.  As the Center continues to grow, we may need to change policies described in this Handbook.  We reserve the right to revise, supplement, or rescind any policies or portion of the Handbook from time to time as we deem appropriate, in our sole discretion.  We will keep you informed of any such changes as they occur.

I certify that I understand that the electronic signature below acts as my legal signature on this document*.
