Before you go any farther into this document, consider the fact that your whole organization is made up entirely of volunteers. These are special people as they give freely, of their time and money, to provide a public service under what often may become stressful situations. They do have rights, and since they have made a commitment, also have certain responsibilities. The following includes you as well.
