Affirmations
Community Service
Community Service Volunteers (CSVs) are required by various courts to complete service hours. CSV responsibilities include facilities management, specifically, deep cleaning of community spaces. All prospective CSV’s must first meet with the Community Resource Coordinator, fill out the Center Application, and submit to a background check. Any accepted CSV may participate in Affirmations’ General Volunteer Program only after the completion of community service hours. In so doing, the individual must abide by program requirements and training schedules thereafter.

  • Inquiry: Prospective CSV calls or walks into the Center. Meetings must be scheduled via email for a specific date and time with a minimum of 48 hours notice. The scheduled meeting will be at Affirmations’ only and for 30 minutes. The 30-minute meeting does not count toward hours served. If a prospective CSV misses the scheduled date, it is at the discretion of the Community Resource Coordinator to allow a reschedule. Please be familiar with the volunteer guidebook and procedures before coming in for your meeting. These can be found by clicking here and here.

  • CSV Orientation & Training: CSV must schedule via email a one-hour orientation with the Office & Facility Coordinator. The one-hour orientation counts toward hours served.

  • Schedule & Service Hour Requirements: All CSV’s must schedule service hours via email with the Office & Facility Coordinator, or, if directed, the Community Resource Coordinator. All schedule requests must be made with a minimum of 48 hours notice, and the requested hours must be confirmed prior to arrival. Only 4 service hours per day per CSV are permitted, up to 15 hours per week. Request for hours beyond program protocols must be made to the Office & Facility Coordinator. Any CSV arriving at the Center without having previously scheduled hours, and who are not on the CSV Schedule, will be not be accommodated.

  • Sign-In & Check-In: All CSV’s are required to record hours worked by signing-in to the Volunteer Sign-In sheet located at the Welcome & Resource Desk. Recorded hours are to reflect the time spent working on site and are non-negotiable. Affirmations’ is not liable for hours not recorded on the Volunteer Sign-In sheet. All CSV’s must check-in with assigned Staff prior to beginning work and check-out at completion. Hours recorded without Staff check-in will not be counted.

  • Court Reporting: All official letters must be requested from the Office & Facility Coordinator, and, if needed, Community Resource Coordinator, 48 hours prior to pick up. Court-Appointed Probation Officers may contact the Office & Facility and/or Community Resource Coordinator to verify work site and compliance. The CSV is solely responsible for gathering all required service hours and documents for court-appointed deadlines.
