Expectations

New volunteers must complete all sections of the Volunteer Application & Waiver and return it to the Affiliate Support Manager at least one week prior to their first scheduled volunteer opportunity. 

Construction volunteers must complete the free on-line safety course.  Please call 906-228-3578 for the code to complete this training.

Volunteers must contact the Affiliate Support Manager (cindy@mqthabitat.org) to register for a volunteer opportunity.  Volunteer slots can be done through the office or we can email you a Sign Up Genius link. Only those individuals who have signed up for an opportunity will be able to participate.

If an individual is unable to make the day that he/she has signed up for, he/she should contact the Volunteer Coordinator as soon as possible.

Volunteers should dress appropriately for the task.  Individuals volunteering on the build site or at the ReStore should expect to be working outside and should expect to get dirty.  No open-toed shoes are allowed on the build site or the ReStore.  Volunteers not dressed properly may be asked to leave.

Volunteers should arrive on time for their scheduled build day or volunteer opportunity.

Volunteers with any special needs should contact the Affiliate Support Manager.

Safety is of the upmost importance on the build site and the ReStore.  Volunteers should follow the directions of the Site Leader, Construction Coordinator or supervisor at all times.

Individuals must not be under the influence of alcohol or any illicit drugs while participating in volunteer opportunities.

Individuals under the age of 18 should consult the Age Restrictions Guidelines regarding applicable volunteer opportunities.

Individuals failing to follow the Volunteer Policy may be asked to no longer volunteer.

In order to provide the best volunteer experience possible, our organization reserves the right to amend or update this policy as needed.
