New Community Service Policy

FreeGeek Chicago has a new community service policy.  We hope that this policy will continue to encourage those seeking community service opportunities to volunteer with us, while making the process easier and clearer for staff. Full text is below and available on our wiki.

Community Service Policy

FreeGeek Chicago encourages those seeking community service opportunities to volunteer with us. Unless your program prohibits it, hours served in FreeGeek volunteer programming will also count towards community service requirements. Volunteers that want to complete community service hours with FreeGeek must:

 

  • Before beginning, make FreeGeek Staff aware that they will be serving community service hours
  • Provide FreeGeek Staff with any required community service forms
  • Allow FreeGeek Staff up to one (1) week to process community service paperwork

 

Volunteers completing community service with restrictions on receiving any compensation must complete their community service hours first, before earning hours in the FreeGeek Earn-a-Box program. These community service hours cannot count towards any FreeGeek benefit.
