Partnership Volunteer Agreement

    Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer!

    The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids (“Partnership”) and all Partnership volunteers (“Volunteer”) commit to work together in order to help families whose loved ones are struggling with substance use and not for personal, political, third party, or financial gain. As a volunteer, I agree to the following:

The Volunteer understands that he/she/they does not qualify for workers’ compensation benefits and is expected to carry personal medical insurance to cover medical expenses for any injuries he/she/they incurs while performing volunteer services.

    3. The Volunteer will address any questions or concerns related to volunteer rules or responsibilities by speaking directly with the supervising Partnership staff member.
