Get on Your Feet endeavors to have a constructive and encouraging impact in the prison systems. One of our highest priorities is safety for everyone involved. Therefore, we believe in accountability and responsibility of an organization to do their due diligence in supporting that priority. Below is our due diligence to having the right staff and volunteers.
Our On-boarding Process:
Our staff and volunteer leaders go through a careful screening process that consists of an application, interview(s), character references and criminal background checks.
- Our staff and volunteer leaders are given Get on Your Feet’s full Statement of Faith, Mission and Vision Statement, and Conduct Policies to read and sign. Your signature is acknowledgement of agreement with the documents.
- Our staff and volunteer leaders demonstrate acceptance and love for all young people, and we encourage young people involved with Get on Your Feet to model the same.
- We train our staff and volunteers to sustain boundaries in relationships with the participants. We leverage highly qualified Human Resources professionals to train our staff on how to screen and train our teams.
