Most volunteer activities pose no legal risk but some do. And some volunteer activities may hold a particular level of danger for the participants or the volunteer. Volunteers and staff of organizations who agree to engage in these activities take on certain responsibilities. If these responsibilities are not handled with care, the volunteer and organization can be held accountable.

This book, created by People's Law School, is a resource for volunteers, staff and board members to learn about how the law applies to volunteer activities and the work you do. By understanding the law, you will be able to prevent or minimize your risks.
