I wish to allow myself/son/daughter/child under my legal guardianship (“child”) to volunteer with various community service organizations through HandsOn San Diego (HOSD), a fiscally sponsored project of Mission Edge San Diego, a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit CA corporation (Tax ID # 27-2938491). In consideration of HOSD providing myself/my child with the opportunity to perform volunteer activities, I hereby agree, for myself, my heirs, assigns, executors, and administrators, to be legally bound hereby and waive, release, and forever discharge HOSD and its nonprofit partner agencies, its officers and directors, members, partners, funders, employees, agents, and volunteers (“Releases”) from any and all liability, causes of action, suits, proceedings, damages, judgments, claims and demands whatsoever arising out of my/my child’s participation as a HOSD volunteer or in any HOSD related activity. 

I am aware and agree that there are inherent risks of injury to myself/my child, my/my child’s property and third parties arising from volunteer activities typically performed by HOSD volunteers, and which may be performed by me/my child as a HOSD volunteer. I hereby give permission for myself/my child to participate in all activities through HOSD and expressly and specifically acknowledge that those activities may involve (a) physical activity (including without limitation work with heavy tools and materials), (b) contact with unidentified and unfamiliar persons, (c) travel to and from various unspecified locations, and (d) other potential risk of injury. Notwithstanding the preceding sentence, I willingly and freely assume all such risk and damage to person or property arising there from, whether or not resulting from negligence, and agree to release HOSD and its Releases from any and all liability, actions, causes of action, claims and demands of every kind and nature whatsoever which I now have or which may arise out of or in connection with my/my child’s volunteer services as a HOSD volunteer or in any HOSD related project or activity.

HOSD is committed to providing an environment for volunteers within their programs that is free of discrimination and unlawful harassment. HOSD policy prohibits sexual harassment and harassment because of race, religious creed, color, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, mental condition, marital status, age, sexual orientation, or any other bases protected by federal, state or local laws or ordinances or regulations. I am aware and agree that volunteers who violate this policy are subject to dismissal from HOSD. 

Volunteers under the age of 18 are not allowed to participate in any volunteer activities until a signed Minor Consent Waiver has been returned to HandsOn San Diego.


I hereby give my permission to HOSD, their Releases and to the photographer, my free and unlimited consent and permission to publish/broadcast, republish/rebroadcast or exhibit in the furtherance of their work, with or without identification of me or my child by name, any photographs, videos or audios of myself/my child, that have been obtained from my/his/her participation in HOSD activities. I furthermore waive any and all claims for any compensation by reason thereof or for damages for reasons thereof.

I attest that I am over 18 years of age, and I warrant that I have legal authority to execute this agreement on myself/my child or legal ward’s behalf.
