Conflict of Interest:
Volunteers are expected to follow rules of conduct that will protect the interest and safety of all volunteers,
staff and St. Frederick.
St. Frederick is judged, in large part, by the individual and collective performance of its volunteers.
St. Frederick must recognize the importance of a volunteer’s duty to St. Frederick, and to its members and supporters, to act in
a manner that merits public trust and confidence.
Each volunteer must act in all matters in a manner that will safeguard the reputation and integrity of St. Frederick
and will preserve and strengthen public confidence in St. Frederick activities.
Likewise, volunteers must refrain from engaging in any transaction in which personal interests conflict,
potentially conflict, or appear to conflict with those of St. Frederick.
An actual or potential conflict of interest occurs when a volunteer is in a position to influence a decision
that may result in a personal gain for yourself or for a relative as a result of St. Frederick’s business dealings.
For the purposes of this policy, a relative is a person who is related by blood or marriage, or whose
relationship with the volunteer is similar to that of persons who are related by blood or marriage.
Participation in any activity prohibited by this Policy can result in the termination of volunteer service.
Some conflict of interest situations are easily identifiable, whereas others are more subtle.
Some of the more common situations pertaining to volunteers rise to the potential conflicts set out below.
Volunteers are representatives of St. Frederick and are responsible for presenting a positive image to constituents and the
Volunteers will dress appropriately for the conditions and performance of their duties.
Volunteers that serve in a capacity of a presenter, speaker or other face-to-face constituent contact will wear a
St. Frederick name tag.
Volunteers who work as support in an office situation will dress according to the code of that particular office.
Individual volunteers will be informed of the dress standard for their duties at the time of assignment.
Attendance and Time:
Volunteer attendance is important to the operation of each program.
Volunteers should notify their supervisor in advance if they are unable to be present on their scheduled day or
Volunteers are responsible for completing and submitting their volunteer time to the Volunteer Coordinator.
Time not accounted for is the responsibility of the volunteer.
Emergency Facility Closings:
St. Frederick provides a drug-free, healthy, and safe environment.
While on St. Frederick premises and while conducting St. Frederick related activities off St. Frederick premises, a volunteer may not use,
possess, distribute, sell or be under the influence of alcohol or illegal drugs.
The legal use of prescribed drugs is permitted during volunteer service only if it does not impair a volunteer’s
ability to perform the essential functions of the volunteer position effectively and in a safe manner that does
not endanger other individuals in the workplace.
Volunteers must advise their supervisor if they are taking any prescription or over-the-counter drug which could
adversely affect safety or performance.
St. Frederick strives to ensure the safety of all volunteers.
In the event of inclement weather, volunteers will be responsible for contacting their volunteer site to inform
their supervisor that they will not be performing their scheduled service.
If a St. Frederick office should close, the Volunteer Coordinator will notify volunteers scheduled to perform service via
phone of the closing.
Volunteers receive periodic evaluations to review their performance.
The evaluations allow for a volunteer and supervisor to suggest changes, seek suggestions and enhance the
relationship between the volunteer, staff and St. Frederick.
The evaluation is discussion period, and both supervisor and volunteer should establish an open line of communication.
Any volunteer or close relative, should not, when acting on his or her own behalf or
when acting on behalf of another person, business or organization, attempt to influence St. Frederick’s position on any
issue, matter or transaction nor participate in any discussions pertaining to a related organization.

Inside information should not be used either for the purposes of gaining advantage for
one’s self, a close relative, or another organization or for any other purpose not specifically approved by St. Frederick.
Making of Statements:
Volunteers may request a leave of absence with the approval of their supervisor.
This leave of absence will not alter or extend beyond the previously agreed ending date of service.
No volunteer shall use St. Frederick stationery or any title of
St. Frederick or refer to St. Frederick or misidentify him or herself as an employee thereof in connection with any matter as
to which he or she is not authorized as a representative of St. Frederick and to express an opinion on its behalf.
Recognition of Volunteer:
Volunteers are encouraged to take an active interest and to participate in the
political and governmental process.
However, except for registered lobbyists and others authorized to act on behalf of St. Frederick, volunteers
participating do so as individuals and not as representatives of St. Frederick.
To avoid any inference of support or sponsorship by St. Frederick, a volunteer must never represent that his or
her political donation, endorsement or other political activity was made or engaged in with the approval,
or on behalf, of St. Frederick.
Likewise, volunteers must not engage in political activities during their volunteer service on behalf of St. Frederick.
The federal tax code prohibits 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations from “directly or indirectly participating in,
or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office.”
This means that a tax-exempt organization (owner, borad, staff, or volunteers) may under no circumstances make direct or indirect contributions
to political campaigns or parties or make any public statements of position, written or verbal, in favor of
or in opposition to any candidate for public office or their party.
Reimbursement of Expenses:
Special sponsor recognition events for volunteers to highlight the contributions of volunteers to the organization.
Continuing recognition of volunteers is vital and will occur throughout the year.
Safety and Liability:
Volunteers may be eligible for reimbursement of pre-approved, actual out-of-pocket expenses, including
transportation expenses, incurred while engaging in volunteer service for St. Frederick.
But most times St. Frederick needs your help in these expenses.
Upon the approval of a supervisor, volunteers need to track and submit receipts for all actual out-of-pocket
expenses for which they seek reimbursement.
Reimbursement for travel to and from volunteer service by motor vehicle is based on mileage and the standard
rate per mile at which St. Frederick reimburses volunteer drivers.
Reimbursement for travel to and from volunteer service by public transportation is based on actual out-of-pocket
expense which must be substantiated by receipts by a pre-approval.
Reimbursement requests must be submitted to the Volunteer Coordinator.
Contact the Volunteer Coordinator for the current mileage reimbursement rate.
Safety and Security:
St. Frederick aims to provide a safe and healthy environment for all volunteers.
If a volunteer is injured in the course of the volunteer’s service, it is important that the volunteer notify his
or her supervisor immediately.
Volunteers should also complete an incident report and submit the report to the volunteer’s supervisor.
St. Frederick’s general liability coverage, with some limitations, and exclusions, protects volunteer workers for covered injury
or damage that results from activities or service that volunteers conduct or perform at St. Frederick’s direction and within
of their duties for St. Frederick.
St. Frederick’s general liability coverage does not provide coverage to volunteers themselves for liabilities they may have
incurred for their actions.
St. Frederick’s volunteer accident insurance coverage covers some injuries to volunteers while volunteers are performing
volunteer service on behalf of St. Frederick.
In some instances, volunteers must sign a release absolving St. Frederick of liability when
St. Frederick volunteers voluntarily and knowingly subject themselves to certain risks while performing volunteer services
on behalf of St. Frederick.
Contact the Volunteer Coordinator with questions or for more information about insurance and liability.
St. Frederick desires to provide a safe volunteer environment.

At the end of a service term, volunteers may elect to renew their volunteer service agreement with St. Frederick.
The number of service hours requested may vary per need.
However, this service requirement varies by opportunity.
St. Frederick is committed to providing volunteers with an environment that is free from discrimination and unlawful harassment.
Actions, words, jokes, or comments based on an individual’s sex, race, ethnicity, age, religion, or any other
legally protected characteristic will not be tolerated.

Put Your Shoulder To The Wheel
The world has need of willing men
Who wear the worker's seal.
Come, help the good work move along;
Put your shoulder to the wheel.

Do your duty with a heart full of song,
We all have work; let no one shirk.
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
The Church has need of helping hands,
And hearts that know and feel.
The work to do is here for you;
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
Then don't stand idly looking on;
The fight with sin is real.
It will be long but must go on;
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
Then work and watch and fight and pray
With all your might and zeal.
Push ev'ry worthy work along;
Put your shoulder to the wheel.
