The Patriot Project connects with volunteers who want to donate their time, talent or treasure to our veterans and military. We have developed The Patriot Project Volunteer Code of Conduct to promote sustainable and effective volunteering.
As a Patriot Project Volunteer, I promise to:
Treat all individuals with a sense of respect and worth, while making a personal commitment to be nonjudgement with each person with whom I work.
Be courteous and polite in my actions.
Avoid profanity and abusive language as well as disruptive behavior that is considered dangerous.
Respect all confidential information. Volunteers are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of all proprietary or privileged information to which they are exposed while serving as a volunteer, whether this information involves a single staff, volunteer, client or other person.
Not to pressure anyone to accept my political, cultural, or religious beliefs.
Be dependable, recognizing the commitment and responsibility to my volunteer assignment.
Accept assignment consistent with my interest, abilities, and available time.
Accept assignment with an open mind and a willingness to learn.
Avoid conflict of interest situations and refrain from actions that may be perceived as such. Volunteers should reveal any potential or actual conflicts of interest as they arise.
Not use, possess, or be under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs at any time.
Abstain from all illegal activity.
Report suspicious activities to the appropriate legal authorities.
Be a team player. Keep an open mind and value the input and suggestions of my fellow volunteers, hosts, co-workers, and colleagues. Come to decisions democratically. Seek consensus.
Be patient when working on group projects. React with grace when your idea is not the one chosen. Support the project to the best of your ability.
When agreeing to The Patriot Project Code of Conduct, you are agreeing to a public record background check. The Patriot Project has the right to refuse volunteers based on the public record results.
