  • Respect the rights of people you work with
  • Have a non-judgmental approach
  • Carry out the specified job description
  • Give feedback (i.e. participate in volunteer meetings and evaluations)
  • Be accountable and accept feedback
  • Be committed to the program
  • Avoid overextending yourself
  • Acknowledge decisions made by the staff or the organization
  • Ask for support when it is needed
  • Address areas of conflict with the appropriate staff member or volunteer coordinator
