NEW OPPORTUNITY - SHARE THE 8 HOUR SHIFT
If for any reason, you do not want to work a full 8-hour shift, here are alternatives:
1. Split the 8-hour shift by inviting a partner, friend, associate, or anyone age 16 and over to work the other part of your shift. You might work the first 4 hours and they work the second 4 hours. Or any length you agree on, for example, 3 hours and 5 hours (or any combination as long as it totals 8 hours or more).
2. What will not work is for both of you to work the same 4 hours, unless;
3. A group of 4 partners up. For example, you and your partner work the same 4 hours, and the other 2 in your team work the 2nd four hours.
Sign-Up Logistics –
You and your co-volunteers pair up to fill the 8-hour shift and sign up on the same line (works the same for Board sign-up or on line sign up). The volunteers on the same line will fulfill the 8-hour shift. If there are only two of you, one works the first half of the shift, and the other works the second half.
If there are 4 of you that want to work as couples at the same time - remember we are treating a line on the sign-up as an 8-hour shift. For example, let’s take spouses Larry and Nancy who wish to serve on the same 4-hour shift. We agree to split our shift with Jack and Phyllis. Here we go on the sign-up entry:
1. Larry and Jack on the same line to share one 8-hour shift.
2. Nancy and Phyllis on the next line to share a second 8-hour shift.
The idea is to prevent ending up with 11 volunteers working the first 4 hours and shorting the next 4 hours with only 9 staff filling a 10 person eight-hour shift.
Too confusing – just make sure you are not doubling up on a portion of the shift, and burdening the last portion of the shift by shorting the 8-hour shift.
