Volunteers are expected to commit to any projects that they have signed up for by abiding by the set minimum requirements for each project:
Failure to comply with the requirements will result in the allocation of ½ strikes: the termination of hours for that project.
Continued failure to commit to projects will result in 2/2 strikes, meaning that the volunteer would be at risk of expulsion.
Volunteers are expected to be principled; refraining from plagiarism, false information, documentation, or slander.
Volunteers must comply with the policies and directions provided by the ‘Am4Teens Team’.
Any further inquiries or assistance will be addressed by allocated team members.
Any affliction to another volunteer or team member such as bullying/cyber-bullying, discrimination, gender, civil status, sexual orientation, religion, age, disability, is prohibited at Am4Teens and the volunteer(s) will be removed from the organization.
We welcome everyone at Am4Teens, and volunteers who are being discriminatory against their peers will not be tolerated.
If any misinformation spreads about Am4Teens volunteers, team members, organization partners’, and the organization itself will NOT be tolerated and will be removed from the organization with a possibility of a written letter (email) to the teacher/counselor listed on the volunteer’s application. As stated in bullet point two “Code of Conduct for Volunteers”, slander will not be tolerated.
Volunteers are NOT permitted to share resources/opportunities (sign-up forms, sheets, events, webinars, meetings, etc) with individuals that are NOT a part of Am4Teens. This is violating the privacy of those who are a part of the organization. An investigation will be conducted if caught sharing information/resources to individuals outside of Am4Teens.
Slack is used for the leadership team members of the organization to communicate with volunteers about new opportunities, information, etc. Therefore, volunteers are not allowed to post/share messages that are unrelated without the Founder’s (Annie Mokatsyan) or COO's (Ariane Lemaire and Eimaan Shahid) permission.
If a volunteer will no longer like to volunteer with Am4Teens, volunteers must request the "Am4Teens Expression of Leave" form from either a team member or board member. The volunteer must accurately fill out the form following the criteria. Once the form has been filled out, the board member corresponding with the volunteers' last name will reach out regarding this endeavor. We are kindly asking for the volunteers' to be patient- it's not a quick process as we need to remove the volunteer from any/every project they signed up for, our workspaces, portals, etc. We would appreciate a formal and professional leave.
Please be respectful to those in the Am4Teens community.
Please avoid participating in volunteer projects as it is tailored to high school and college students ONLY. Parents are more than welcome to attend the events either online/in person.
Please be kind with your words as your child is in a community filled with minors. We are young students trying to do our part in global progress, therefore nothing will be perfect, so we ask that you respect that.
If your child no longer wants to commit to Am4Teens, it is their responsibility to request the "Am4Teens Expression of Leave" form. So please do not do it on behalf of your child.
Any slander, hatred, cruelty, threats, and unprofessionalism directed towards any team member, volunteer, partner, and/or project will not be tolerated. We, as young students, are doing our best to run a nonprofit organization (stated in the third bullet point) efficiently and remotely. It is a felony to threaten or harass a minor (or anyone) online.
