Community Action Partners (CAP) Volunteer Agreement
Though participation in CAP projects is a volunteer effort, the client organizations we serve and fellow volunteers count on each team member to be actively engaged throughout the duration of the project. Further, the reputations of CAP, the Harvard Business School Association of Boston (HBSAB), Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School are impacted by the effectiveness and professionalism of CAP volunteers. As a volunteer on a CAP pro bono project, I commit to being an active participant in the project I am assigned to for the duration of the project within reasonable bounds of scope and time. This includes a commitment:
- averaging 2-4 hours per week during project time period, with sufficient schedule flexibility to attend virtual team and client meetings at the mutually agreed upon time
- to sign up for, and complete on time, a fair share of the work
- to respond in a timely fashion to e-mails and voice messages
- to communicate pro-actively to the members and leadership of the team should extenuating circumstances make it impossible for me to continue active participation at certain times
- I understand that CAP and HBSAB act only in matching organizations and volunteers for pro bono consulting work, and that the scope fo the project and the consulting services rendered must be agreed upon directly between the organizations and the volunteers who will undertake the project.
- During the tenure of the project, I agree not to have any personal interest in or directly or indirectly derive any personal gain from the organization to which I am consulting. If I have, or develop, any such personal interest, I agree to immediately notify my CAP Board Liaison.
- I agree not to disclose any confidential client information obtained in connection with this project work, or use confidential client information for personal, family or professional gain during or after this project.
- I agree that none of CAP, HBSAB or HBS, or their respective officers, directors, trustees, affiliates, other volunteers, employees, agents, successors or assigns shall have any liability of any kind or nature to me relating to, or arising out of, the CAP program or any services rendered in connection with the CAP Program, including any claims by a Client Party
