  • I understand that I will be required to undertake induction and/or service/program training prior to commencing volunteer work with ZRCLC.

  • I agree to disseminate information without regard to race, age, colour, religion, national origin or ancestry, sex, gender, disability, genetic information, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression.
  • I agree to not be under the influence of alcohol or drugs (non-prescription drugs) during the online lessons.
  • I agree not to provide the student/s with illegal contents or encourage their use.
  • I agree to use positive reinforcement with ZRCLC students rather than criticism, competition or comparison.
