  • Work as a team member with other volunteers, participants, visitors, government or private employees and with all others involved in the Yantalo Programs.
  • Provide a safe environment by not harming anyone in any way, whether through discrimination, sexual harassment, physical force, verbal or mental abuse, neglect or other harmful actions.
  • Respect the privacy of persons and hold in confidence sensitive private and personal information.
  • Keep the Foundation staff informed of progress, concerns, issues or situations, which in my opinion may jeopardize the success and effectiveness of the Yantalo Programs.
  • Promote and support the development of the Yantalo Programs at local, national and international levels.

At any time while volunteering, I will not:

  • Discriminate on the basis of race, color, politics, religion, sex, age, national origin, marital status, disability or sexual orientation.

  • Solicit gifts, gratuities or bequests for personal or professional benefits.

I understand that as a volunteer working with children, youth and/or vulnerable adults, I am subject to a thorough background check including criminal history.

I have read this Code of Conduct and I agree to follow these standards as a volunteer for the Yantalo Foundation. Any action inconsistent with this Code of Conduct or failure to take action mandated in this Code of Conduct may result in my removal as a volunteer in the Yantalo Program.
