By typing my name below, I understand that the Friendship Circle of Miami, Inc, including without limitation, any of its directors, teachers, employees, or agents, and including any volunteer, shall not be liable to any party for injury or damage, whether from acts of negligence or otherwise, in any way attributable to or in connection with such activities or field trips.
I permit my child's photos - without any identifying information - to be used for publicity purposes by The Friendship Circle and its partners, as it relates to Friendship Circle activities.
I give permission for my child(ren) to participate in off-site field trips as scheduled. You will be advised of such field trips in advance.
The Friendship Circle provides very special and unique opportunities for volunteers, special friends, and both sets of families to enrich the lives of each other. In doing so, some participants may encounter new and sometimes challenging situations. Thus, it is imperative to set expectations in the beginning so that volunteers, special friends, and parents understand what they can expect. Please take a moment to read over and check the boxes below each guideline that establishes safety and promotes friendship based on mutual respect and personal well-being for everyone involved in our program. You/your child may not be involved in a specific program referenced; however you may be involved at some point during the year so please acknowledge by checking every statement.
I understand that participation in this program is entirely voluntary and requires participants to abide by applicable rules and standards of conduct, to use their best judgment and sense of responsibility when volunteering in all program and events, and to serve as a role model to our special friends and other volunteers.
I understand that, if I choose to give out personal phone number or social media to a participant, Friendship Circle is NOT responsible for communication outside of Friendship Circle.
I understand that, as a result of being a Friendship Circle volunteer, I will be building bonds with special friends who will be counting on me to be present consistently. VOLUNTEER ATTENDANCE MUST BE A PRIORITY.
I understand that as a volunteer with this program, the use of a phone or other electronic devices during programs does not promote healthy friendships. A cell phone should only be used in case of emergency.
I understand that participation in Friendship Circle activities involves a certain degree of risk and can be physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding. I may be exposed to biting, hitting, and scratching. I agree to take on this responsibility.
I agree not to bring any alcohol, drugs, tobacco products, vaping devices, weapons, firearms, posses any illegal substances or other dangerous items to any Friendship Circle program or events.
I agree to respect the privacy of all participants of the Friendship Circle and to keep all personal information confidential.
In the event that I am unable to volunteer during my scheduled time, I will contact the FC Coordinator AT LEAST 48 HOURS in advance, barring illness or family emergency. In the case of the Friends @ Home program, I will try to find another day to substitute, and I will notify the parents of my special friend AT LEAST 24 HOURS in advance.
I agree to dress appropriately: no tank tops, no ripped jeans, shorts MUST be fingertip length on thigh, and wear sneakers.
I agree to represent the Friendship Circle of Miami to the best of my abilities.
