It is important to get your volunteers to sign a liability form.  This can protect you or your organization in case of an accident.


Paper Sign-In Sample Volunteer Sign-In Sheet

In the event that you don't have access to internet, power, or wifi, your organization would need an alternative method to tracking volunteer hours.  A paper form that tracks names, contact information, and work completed would be beneficial.  Once you have access to a computer, you can add the hours to HandsOn Connect.
