Remember, our Board has adopted a policy that states:
“The Board of Directors understands the importance of staff community involvement and will support and encourage its staff as well as any personnel compensated through contractual agreement with WorkNet Pinellas to participate in volunteer activities.

Junior Achievement is an internationally recognized program that is heavily reliant on volunteers to carry out its mission. The success skills component of the Junior Achievement program encompasses employability skills training for youth which directly relates to the mission of WorkNet Pinellas. The success skills program requires volunteers to teach a 50 minute class one day a week for eight weeks. With travel time included this would commit the employee to 16-20 hours per class and WorkNet will limit each employee to no more than two classes per year. In addition to providing a community service the Junior Achievement program provides professional development opportunities for the volunteers.

Therefore, individuals who volunteer to participate in the Junior Achievement program during normal business hours shall be compensated at their standard rate of pay and will incur no adverse action related to fringe benefits or accrual of leave time. Volunteer hours will count as hours worked and should be recorded as an indirect charge to WorkNet grant(s).
