Wichita Pride Volunteer Guidelines

  1. Always remember that when you are working for WPI, you are a representative of the group and its ideals. In many cases you will be the first contact that some people will have with WPI. You must always present a positive image of WPI.
  2. Your appearance is important. Always look your best when representing WPI. Please always be clean and wearing clean clothes, this includes ball caps. Since most of our events occur in the summer months, deodorant is a must.
  3. Collared shirts are preferred but not mandatory. No ripped, dirty or see-through t-shirts or tank tops will be allowed. No shirts with obscene language or imagery will be allowed. No alcohol, tobacco or drug imagery or advertising on t-shirts will be allowed.
  4. No smoking, dipping or chewing tobacco while you are working. If you are a tobacco user, please take a break in appropriate designated areas.
  5. No consuming alcoholic beverages while you are representing WPI in any capacity.
  6. No profanity. Please watch your language and remember that many of our events are family oriented and it is likely that children will be in the area.
