Shift Responsibility

I understand that the Café community is built on personal responsibility and relationships. The information included on this sheet is truthful to the best of my ability. I have read, understand and agree to follow the  Stone Soup Café Community Guidelines. I will act with respect for Café’s volunteers and guests. I will take responsibility my actions. If I am uncomfortable addressing an issue with another community member, I will bring the issue to the attention of the Volunteer Coordinator. If I am not able to make a scheduled shift, I will let the Volunteer Coordinator know at least 24 hours before the shift if I cannot attend.

Community Guidelines

By having guidelines we create a space that is safe for everyone

• Treat all with dignity, respect, and kindness

• Refrain from rude & disruptive behavior

• Communicate with language that is inclusive and compassionate

• Strive to share knowledge and build relationships with the community

• Respect others’ boundaries

• Remain open to learning new skills and refraining from self criticisms

• Work with mindful intention and ask for clarification if confused

GIVE
I understand that building a healthy community requires my investment and observation of community guidelines. I politely speak up when I believe I am not respected.

TAKE
I understand that if my actions indicate a lack of investment, I will be asked to take responsibility for my actions or stop attending. I listen when someone expresses how he or she believes I have disrespected them and actively work to solve the issue or ask for help if the situation is too challenging.
