*A “term" or "time period" commitment can be abandoned or terminated at any time, and for any reason, by Compassion Staff or the serving volunteer. Term or Time Period Commitments are solely used to help promote a healthy stewardship of the invested time and resources related to this type of volunteer management.

**Any potential travel is deemed necessary - solely for the purpose of equipping volunteers live at certain training events, or for sending Volunteer Leadership physically to perform duties at a non-local location within the USA – for example: Festivals, Concerts, Conferences, Seminars, Radio Marathons, College Chapels, or other similar assignments."

***Travel and other costs may be covered by Compassion for training events that are considered required for certain roles. Attendance or participation in training events, although they may be communicated as required at times, are still considered optional at the discretion of the volunteer or Volunteer Management. These training events are not considered compensation, but rather investments for successful service of our Volunteer Leadership.
