(I don't think a t-shirt is necessary. What if a volunteer already purchased a t-shirt? I think we should not require a volunteer to wear it on the job. We don't have a "uniform" policy here and people should be able to wear clothes they are comfortable in. What if a volunteer needs a shirt in a size we don't have-we are not able to order one t-shirt at a time.
Hangout time at FreeGeek :)
I don't know where we are with the "badge" program that we once talked about, but I think working the front desk might be one of our badge opportunities.
Should there be provisions here about background checks, requirements that there be no criminal offenses in specific categories (sex,violence,theft), or signing a special form? These other orgs require it. -Alex
FreeGeek is an information technology-oriented organization. Staff and volunteers pledge to refrain from any sexual language or innuendo, slurs related to ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. Disparaging remarks about any group of people, unwanted sexual advances towards other volunteers, excessive cursing, cursing around children, and disruptive behavior. At best, these behaviors are unrelated to FreeGeek's goals, and they can be completely alienating to other volunteers.
