Release from Liability, Assumption of Risk, and Covenant Not to Sue Agreement
I acknowledge that I have volunteered to refurbish computers and do similar projects with Computers for the Blind (CFTB).
I am voluntarily participating in the activities of refurbishing computers which include, but are not limited to, refurbishing, picking up, delivering, lifting, loading, cleaning, unloading, packing, shipping, and moving computers and monitors and other related activities with the knowledge of the risk of injury involved. I hereby agree to accept any and all risk of injury, illness, or death, and verify this statement by entering my electronic signature below. As a volunteer, this acceptance applies from this day forward.
As consideration for volunteering with CFTB, to participate in the activities, and use CFTB’s tools and facilities, I hereby agree and covenant that I, my assignees, heirs, guardians, and legal representatives will never file, make any claim, lawsuit, or other proceeding (whether judicial or administrative) against, sue, or touch the property of CFTB and their directors, officers, agents, employees, volunteers, suppliers, contractors, or subcontractors for injury, illness, or damage resulting from my participation in the CFTB activity. I hereby forever release and discharge CFTB from all known and unknown actions, claims, expenses, or demands. (Including, but not limited to, attorneys' fees and other litigation related expenses, negligence claims and wrongful death claims pursuant to Texas civil Prac. & Rem Code 71.021.) That I, or my representatives, now have, or may hereafter have, for injury, death, or damage resulting from or related in anyway to my volunteering at CFTB activities (Including, but not limited to, actions, claims, or demands resulting in whole or in part from the negligence of CFTB, or their directors, officers, agents, employees, suppliers, or contractors, in both their public and private capacities.) This release is intended by all/both parties to be broad in its effect.
I also agree to let CFTB use any photographs taken of me in videos or photos to promote their cause. I have carefully read this release from Liability and Assumption of Risk Agreement and I fully understand its contents. I am aware that this is a release of liability and a legal contract between me and CFTB, and that it affects my legal rights. This agreement contains the entire understanding of the parties and there are no oral agreements that apply to or are binding concerning my participation. I am signing this document of my own free will.
By entering anything into the name field and hitting submit, you have agreed to everything contained in this contract.
If you are under the age of 18, you need to submit a signed release document from a parent or guardian before starting your first shift.
We are excited that you are interested in volunteering at Computers for the Blind. Our process has changed significantly, and we would invite you to read more about it here, even if you have volunteered in previous years with us. In the past, our volunteering opportunities were open to all who were interested in helping our cause. We are forever grateful for the volunteers who have served with us across our history and for the thousands of computers built. We wouldn't be where we are today without your help!
As we move forward as an organization, we are committed to improving our customer service and satisfaction to help us reach even more individuals who need computers. We have updated our volunteer program to reflect this commitment. This means, going forward, we are specifically looking for volunteers who have experience or skills in the following areas:
Hardware level building and refurbishing of computer systems
Troubleshooting and resolving computer hardware and software problems
Warehouse intake and inventory management
Training others on how to use computers or software
If you have experience in any of these areas, or have other skills that you want to offer to our organization, you may continue this application. After you complete the application, we will contact you with the next steps of this process. Please note that volunteering with us in the past does not guarantee a volunteer position in our new program.
The following questions are based off the skills and experience that we are looking for in volunteers, and will help us determine compatibility. Our decision to accept volunteers does not fully depend on the answers given.
Have you built or upgraded computer hardware previously?
Can you install memory modules or reinstall a processor?
Do you have a background in computer hardware, programming, or IT?
Do you have experience troubleshooting and fixing hardware level problems?
Are you able to commit to a long-term volunteer position with us?
We again thank you for your interest in volunteering at Computers for the Blind. We review every application and normally respond within 7 days. Please do not submit multiple applications as this will delay the review process, and it does not improve your chances to be approved.
Please note that we have raised the requirements for volunteering and we have limited positions, so we will be selecting only the most qualified candidates.
For those that are accepted, the next step is an interview with our Operations Manager, including a hands-on test of some of the skills we are looking for.
