Victory Mission Volunteer Guidelines & Code of Conduct
Age Requirements:
Specific Warehouse, Pantry, & Special / Holiday Projects - Open to volunteers of all ages when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Those we serve may suffer from mental illness, addiction, or may have recently been incarcerated. Parents or guardians assume all risk associated with children volunteering, and are strongly cautioned to not allow children to leave their presence while they serve.

All other volunteer assignments: Volunteers must be 18 or older.

Dress Code: Please dress in a manner that will not be distracting to those we serve, and which is appropriate for the work you are doing. Please avoid the following:
* Shorts that are particularly short or mini-skirts

* Sandals, flip flops or open-toed shoes
* Clothing with obscene or controversial messages or images

Relationships: Please establish responsible boundaries. Victory Mission + Ministry serves a vulnerable population of individuals with traumatic life experiences that present challenges that are often unseen. As a result, it is important to establish professional boundaries with those we serve. Please limit your interactions to take place during volunteer opportunity time frames established by Victory Mission. Please refrain from hosting program participants in your home, providing transportation or personal gifts to program participants, making any promises to those we serve, and from romantic or sexual relationships with those we serve.

We do ask that you make every effort to engage those we serve in meaningful conversation. By learning their stories, you build relationships that lead to life change. When serving as a table host, mentor, food pantry volunteer or in any role, make building relationships your first priority.

Personal Belongings: Victory Mission + Ministry is not responsible for volunteers’ lost or stolen items. Backpacks or handbags are not allowed in the working area. Since storage space is limited, please do not bring these items along.

2. Maintain six feet of distance as much as possible.
3. Volunteers should ensure good personal hygiene, such as frequent 20-second hot water and soap hand washing, and avoid touching their faces when serving. Volunteers who handle food will be asked to wear gloves.
4. Please be aware that requirements might change depending on current national, state and city guidelines. Volunteers commit to following these guidelines when presented by Victory Mission before or during volunteer opportunities.
