  • Participants in volunteer gatherings must maintain six feet of distance between others
  • Attendees are required to wear masks
  • Hand-sanitizer must be provided
  • All volunteers MUST be registered in Neon
  • No in-person contact with minors – unless extremely brief and following social distancing protocols (ex. hand out breakfast bags to RECreate families on their doorstep), must be pre-approved by staff

In-Person Volunteering Guidelines:

If a volunteer cannot respond negatively to the following questions, they should not attend any in-person volunteer event:

  • Did I have a fever within the last 48 hours?
  • Am I experiencing shortness of breath?
  • Do I have a cough?
  • Have I been experiencing chills?
  • Do I have unexplained muscle pain?

  • Have I come into contact with anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19?
  • Have I come into contact with anyone that is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 (as outlined above)?

YLC Office Accessibility:

  • If you need to obtain your project supplies from the YLC office, you will need to make an appointment with staff before doing so

Programming Guidance:

  • For the foreseeable future, please provide members/volunteers with opportunities that don’t require in-person contact in order to include those who are not comfortable/able to attend
