VOLUNTEER AGREEMENT AND RELEASE FROM LIABILITY

 

Voluntary Participation: I acknowledge that I have voluntarily applied to participate in a Rebuilding Together Montgomery County Home Repair Project (the “Project”), in which the disadvantaged persons will have modifications built by volunteers to create a safe and healthy home. I understand that as a volunteer I will not be paid for my services. I further agree that my participation in the Project may be terminated at any time by Rebuilding Together, Montgomery County (“RTMC”).

 

Assumption of Risks: I AM AWARE THAT BY PARTICIPATING IN THE PROJECT, I MAY BE EXPOSED TO PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH OR DAMAGE TO MY PROPERTY AS A RESULT OF MY ACTIVITIES, THE ACTIVITIES OF OTHER VOLUNTEERS, OR THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH MY VOLUNTEER SERVICES ARE PERFORMED.  WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THESE RISKS, I AGREE TO ACCEPT ANY AND ALL RISKS OF PERSONAL INJURY, DEATH OR DAMAGE TO MY PROPERTY.

 

Release: In consideration of the opportunity afforded me to participate in the Project, I hereby agree that I, my successors, assignees, heirs, guardians and legal representatives, will not make any claim against RTMC or any of its affiliated organizations, or their officers, directors, or employees, or any suppliers of any materials or equipment that are used during the Project, any of the Project or RTMC volunteers or sponsors, or any homeowner participating in the Project, for injury, death, or damage resulting from the act or omissions of any person or entity, however caused, arising from my participation in the Project.  Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, I hereby waive and release my rights, actions or causes of action resulting from personal injury to me or my death, or damage to my property, sustained in connection with my participation in the Project; provided, however, that the injury, death or damage was not caused by an act or omission that was reckless, wanton, intentional, or grossly negligent.  If I am under 18 years of age, my parent or guardian waives and releases these rights on my behalf.

 

I further consent to the unrestricted use by RTMC and/or any person authorized by them of any photographs, recordings, interviews, videotapes, motion pictures or similar visual or auditory recording of me created in connection with the Project.

 

Knowing and Voluntary Execution: I HAVE CAREFULLY READ THIS AGREEMENT AND FULLY UNDERSTAND ITS CONTENTS.  I AM AWARE THAT THIS IS A CONTRACT AND A RELEASE OF LIABILITY BETWEEN MYSELF AND RTMC AND I SIGN IT OF MY OWN FREE WILL.  BY COMPLETING THE FOLLOWING FORM AND SIGNING BELOW, I CERTIFY THAT I AM EIGHTEEN YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER OR IF I AM UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE, THAT I HAVE THE CONSENT, WAIVER AND AGREEMENT OF MY PARENT OR GUARDIAN AS EVIDENCED BY HIS/HER SIGNATURE BELOW TO PARTICIPATE PURSUANT TO THE ABOVE AGREEMENT, RELEASE AND WAIVER.
