Guidelines - Responsible Exchange and Volunteering 2018


Implementation Guiding Principles

Policy documents In the interests of good governance and transparency, it is advised that you develop organisational policies as it relates to practicing exchange.

a. Drugs, Alcohol, other abuse b. Language, racism, sexism c. Hosting & changes resulting from participant miss-match; conflict management d. Transportation policy e. Donations and hand-out management f. Disciplinary policies (staff and participants) g. Exit strategy (in the event that a participant has to return home)

It is important that staff know the policies and it is advised that participants are informed of the policies and have access to them should they wish to review and understand the organisation better.

Staffing This is unique as to how each organisation needs to be staffed. For organisations new to exchange, it must be stressed that appropriate resources (human and other) are carefully considered and appropriately planned for in order to undertake the responsibilities associated to exchange.
