By accepting to volunteer with us, you have a responsibility to SAWERA and your fellow volunteers to adhere to certain guideline of conduct. SAWERA tries to keep rules to a minimum. The purpose of these standards of conduct is not to restrict your rights, but rather to be certain that you understand what conduct is expected and necessary as a volunteer of SAWERA. When each person is aware that he or she can fully depend upon fellow volunteers to follow the rules of conduct, then our organization will be a better place to volunteer for everyone.
Generally speaking, SAWERA expects that each person will act in a mature and responsible manner at all times. However to avoid possible confusion, some of the more obvious unacceptable activities are noted below. If you have any questions concerning any volunteer or safety guideline, or any of the unacceptable activities listed, please speak with the volunteer coordinator.
