    Group Policies

    Hillcrest Platte County policies regarding group service events are as follows:

    1. To provide the most meaningful experience for every group interested in serving, we limit approved requests to two (2) group service assignments per month at our housing locations.
    2. HPC considers a variety of factors when deciding whether to approve a request. These include, but are not limited to: organizational capacity, strategic goals, staff & volunteer availability, and relationship with the organization/individual submitting the request.
    3. Applications must be submitted at least six (6) weeks in advance of the first day of the month when you would like to schedule your visit. For convenience, a submission timetable is printed below:
    4. Applications submitted after the deadline may be considered on a case by case basis.
    5. If we are unable to accommodate a group due to space, they will be placed on a waitlist.
    6. To allow our staff enough time to properly prepare for your group, a final headcount is required three (3) business days before your assignment.
    7. Cancellations received with less than seventy-two (72) hours notice may result in a group being automatically waitlisted for future requests.
    8. The minimum age to participate in group service is ten (10). Any volunteers under the age of sixteen (16) are considered “Junior Volunteers” and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Groups must maintain a ratio of one (1) adult for every eight (6) junior volunteers (example - within a group of 12, there must be at least 2 adults).
    9. The minimum age for a tour of our campuses is seven (7), and there must be one (1) adult for every six (6) visitors under sixteen (16).
    10. Liability waivers will be emailed to the group contact after a date is scheduled, and must be returned by the date of service, before any volunteer work begins.
    11. Group service will consist of cleaning and campus projects, which may be in and/or outdoors. Should there be inclement weather, volunteer groups will be notified immediately of any changes to their group service day.
    12. For the safety of our service volunteers, everyone must wear long pants and closed-toe shoes, with long hair secured away from the face. Volunteers who are inappropriately dressed will not be allowed to serve.
    13. HPC will send all organizations a post-visit survey within 48 hours of their visit Checking the box below signifies your agreement to complete this survey:
