  4. Registering agencies also agree to:
    • Agencies are solely responsible for posting/updating agency content in a timely fashion. Update volunteer opportunities quarterly or more frequently as needed. Deactivate all volunteer activities currently not needed. Update any changes with your contact information and disable volunteer opportunities when they are filled.
    • Provide volunteers with service descriptions, orientation, training (where necessary), supervision, evaluation, and recognition to ensure effective volunteer service and satisfaction.
    • In order to clearly communicate expectations and new procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic, each volunteer opportunity posting must include a statement of health and safety protocol for volunteers. Include if masks are required, number of volunteers, distancing and sanitation protocol. If there will be direct contact with staff or clients, what requirements are set for safe interactions.
    • Screen each volunteer referred to the agency as meets your agencies onboarding requirements. The UWGMWC does not screen any volunteer prior to referral. Each agency is responsible for the volunteer(s) referred, and agrees to hold the UWGMWC harmless from any and all claims, losses, damages or expenses, which the agency may incur or suffer as a result of any action or inaction of any volunteer referred to the agency.
    • Contact referred volunteers within 1-2 business days. Refer unplaced volunteers back to UWGMWC database.
