Confidential
  • SCTA confidences must not be violated, not repeat information concering students or teachers private lives
  • Volunteers must not criticize or interfere with the school routine
  • Volunteers are not to verbally or physically discipline students. Refer any issues with students to the teachers
Compensation
  • NO compensation, benefits on any work done
  • Work for a cause, not for applause.
  • Volunteers are not paid -- not because they are worthless, but because they are PRICELESS

Success
  • We make a living by what we get, But we make a life by what we give
  • The future depends on what we do in the present
  • Some people want it to happen, some wish it to happen, others make it happen
