Levels of Commitment

Confirmed Volunteers

Volunteers who commit at least 10 hours per week consistently and are confirmed by the Leadership Committee’s vote will be awarded a Volunteer Certificate and given leadership role, meaning that they can have decision making power.

This level of leadership position requires consistency, reliability, adherence to deadlines, and if circumstances come up where you cannot complete tasks that you take measures in advance to find, train, and delegate to your replacements.

Casual Helpers

Volunteers who are unable to spend more than 5 hours per week consistently but would still love to help out are invited to apply as Casual Volunteers who can jump in to a task pool and pick up small tasks here and there to help out. This is also very meaningful and makes a huge difference in everyone’s lives, but has much smaller commitment, because you only commit on a task-by-task basis, rather than long-term.

Note: Please note that if a Confirmed Volunteer’s circumstances change for whatever reason she may chose to or be asked to become a Casual Helper and give a chance to someone else to take her role. A Casual Helper who finds that she would like to take on more responsibility may also chose to or be invited to become a Confirmed Volunteer. It’s important to keep flexibility so that both of us individually can be happy, and the whole organization can remain solid and reliable.
