Expectations
Clothing: Volunteers must dress appropriately. We recommend volunteers wear the city-issued event T-Shirt (see below), jeans, and sneakers. Volunteers are representing the City of Southlake; therefore, short-shorts, sagging, ripped clothes, offensive content, and open-toed shoes are not permitted. Volunteers will be sent home without service hours if not dressed appropriately.

Cell Phones: Cell phone usage is prohibited during service. This is to ensure a safe and engaging environment for our event attendees. Please notify a staff member if there is an emergency or if you need to step away. Staff will give volunteer one warning then will ask the volunteer to leave the event without receiving service hours.

Cancellations:
We understand that plans change; however, please give a two week notice if you are unable to volunteer. If a volunteer cancels within two weeks of the event, the Volunteer Coordinator will make note on the volunteer’s account for future events. The success of the event depends on the volunteers present!
