VOLUNTEER'S AGREEMENT, ASSUMPTION OF RISK, AND RELEASE OF LIABILITY
1. Voluntary Participation, I acknowledge that I have voluntarily agreed to participate in the Rebuilding Together Home Repair Project, a project in which the homes of disadvantaged persons will be repaired by volunteers, unskilled in home repairs and renovation. I understand that as a volunteer I will not be paid for my services and that I will not be eligible for any Workers Compensation benefits. I further agree that my participation in the project may be orally terminated at any time by Rebuilding Together or by me. 2. Assumption of Risk, I AM AWARE THAT IN VOLUNTARILY PARTICIPATING IN THE PROJECT, I MAY BE EXPOSED TO PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH OR DAMAGE TO MY PROPERTY AS A RESULT OF MY ACTIVITIES, THE ACTIVITIES OF OTHER VOLUNTEERS - WHO MAY NOT AT ALL TIMES ACT CAREFULLY, OR THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH MY VOLUNTEER SERVICES ARE PERFORMED. I HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF THE POSSIBLE RISKS, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE EXISTENCE OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS AT THE WORKSITE, AND I KNOW AND APPRECIATE THOSE RISKS. I HAVE RECEIVED NO ASSURANCE THAT THESE ACTIVITIES WILL BE SAFE AND I ACKNOWLEDGE THE POSSIBILITY OF NEGLIGENT WRONGDOING BY ME AND BY OTHER VOLUNTEERS. WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THESE RISKS, I VOLUNTARILY UNDERTAKE TO ENCOUNTER THESE KNOWN RISKS AND I EXPRESSLY AGREE TO ASSUME ANY AND ALL RISKS OF PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH OR DAMAGE TO MY PROPERTY. I ALSO UNDERSTAND THAT ANY DAMAGE TO MY PERSONAL VEHICLE DURING MY VOLUNTEER ASSIGNMENT IS NOT COVERED BY REBUILDING TOGETHER'S INSURANCE. 3. Release, In consideration of the opportunity afforded me to participate in the Project, I hereby agree that I, my successors, assignees, heirs, guardians and legal representatives will not make any claim against: Rebuilding Together, its affiliated sponsors, organizations, its officers or directors, the suppliers of any materials or equipment that are used during the Project, any of the Project volunteers, or any homeowner participating in the Project, for know or unknown injury, damage, or death resulting from the negligent acts or omissions of any person, including my own, or entity, however caused, arising from my participation in the Project. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, I hereby waive and release any rights, actions or causes of action resulting in my personal injury, or death or damage to my property, sustained in connection with my participation in the Project; provided, however, that the injury, death or damage was not caused by an act or omission that was reckless, wanton, intentional, or grossly negligent. This release is not against public policy and does not violate Civil Code Section 1668. I hereby knowingly, consciously, intelligently, and freely intend to abandon and release all unknown claims which may arise from my participation in this Project. I certify that I have read this entire Agreement, Assumption, and Release including the following on this page: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by him must have materially affected his settlement with the debtor.” Civil Code Section 1542 and that I waive it. I understand and acknowledge the significance freely and voluntarily given and in executing this Agreement and Release, I have not relied on any inducements, promises, or representation by Rebuilding Together or its affiliates, agents, or representative. 4. Consent, I further freely consent to the unrestricted use by Rebuilding Together and/or any person authorized by them of any photographs, recordings, interviews, videotapes, motion picture or similar visual or auditory recording of me created in connection with the Project, and I expect and anticipate no remuneration there from.
