VOLUNTEER TODAY | SHAPE TOMORROW
EARLY SHIFT REFERRAL PROGRAM
There are a variety of shift times for all JDC West volunteers. Of the shifts available, the Early Shifts starting between 3AM – 7:30AM are most difficult due to limited transportation services. To show our appreciation for these volunteers, we have launched an early shift referral program which is summarized below:
|Early Shift Start Times||Referrer Amount||Early Shift Volunteer Amount|
“Referrer” = the person persuading another individual to volunteer for an early shift.
As a Referrer, you will receive a Starbucks gift card for the allotted amounts above according to the number of shifts your Early Shift Volunteer completes. There is no maximum limit on the number of referrals any Referrer can make.
“Early Shift Volunteer” = the person who has applied to be a volunteer, has been successful in receiving an offer, and has been assigned to an early shift start time.
As an Early Shift Volunteer, you will receive a Starbucks gift card for the allotted amounts above according to the number of early shifts you are assigned. All Early Shift volunteers can also be a Referrer and are eligible for referral amounts for both.
- The Referrer must be an SFU student, alumni or a member of the JDC West 2019 Organizing Committee.
- The Referrer must ensure that applicants who have heard about the opportunity through them indicate the Referrers name in the application form. If the Referrer’s name was not indicated, the Referrer is not eligible to claim the referral bonus.
- The Referrer does not need to volunteer in order to be eligible to receive the gift card.
For Early Shift Volunteers:
In order to volunteer, the individual must be eligible as per our volunteer eligibility guidelines:
You may apply to volunteer for the JDC West Hosting team as long as you are not affiliated with any competing teams. “Affiliation” includes judging, coaching, volunteering, attending and donating to the team’s charity causes, volunteering for Chillin’ for Charity by being dunked, being part of the executive team, or participating/facilitating programming offered by the team.
Additionally, if an individual applies but does not receive an offer or is directed to another shift time, they and their Referrer will not be eligible for the amounts listed above.
*Please note: this referral program is only applicable to those referring or volunteering for an Early Shift start time. The Referrer and Early Shift volunteer cannot be the same individual.
Mavis asked Katy if she was interested in volunteering for an early shift at JDC West 2019. Katy signed up for two 4am shifts. She will receive two $20 Starbucks cards, for a total of $40. Mavis will also receive $40 as a benefit for referring.
