Organization Policies

Volunteers are expected to dress appropriately and conduct themselves professionally. Please dress appropriately for the role you will be performing, ie. no open-toed shoes for clean up projects.

Volunteers may not smoke or drink at any of the WEDI locations while on duty.


As a volunteer, you are directly responsible to the program or individual to which you have been assigned. Sometimes a change of assignment is necessary, either for your convenience or to meet the changing demands of the organization. Please do not change assignments unless you have made arrangements to do so with a WEDI staff member. WEDI encourages volunteers to be self-motivated and self-starters.


All volunteers are required to participate in a volunteer orientation. This includes an initial orientation conducted by the Capacity Building Specialist.


Volunteers are a vital part of WEDI and we count on you being here when you're scheduled. Therefore, if you are unable to be here or running late on your scheduled day, please notify your program director at least two days in advance unless sickness or an emergency occurs.

If you plan to take a vacation, please notify your manager as soon as you know the dates that you will be away.


Sign-in sheets are used to record your volunteer hours and attendance. Please verify your hours weekly.

Further instructions will be provided at the orientation.


Parking is free at all of WEDI’s locations

Your volunteer service may be discontinued if you are frequently absent, have unannounced absences, or do not comply with WEDI policies & procedures or volunteer rules & regulations. If you decide to discontinue your volunteer work or require a leave of absence, please inform the staff as far in advance as possible.
