GeneralCommunity service leave use for ECU staff/faculty
In recognition of the State's diverse needs for volunteers to support schools, communities, citizens, and non-profit organizations, and recognizing the commitment of State employees to engage in volunteer service, Community Service Leave, within the parameters outlined below, may be granted to:
• parents for child involvement in the schools (as defined below)
• any employee for volunteer activity in the schools or in a Community Service Organization (as defined below), or
• any employee for tutoring and mentoring in the schools, or
• any employee for volunteering in a State of North Carolina Public University, Community College System or State agency provided that the service is outside of the employee's normal scope of duties and responsibilities and that the employee is not receiving any form of compensation for the services rendered.
To encourage State employees to be engaged in their community, OSHR teamed up with the North Carolina State Employees Combined Campaign to create a volunteer database. Employees can search the list for volunteering opportunities that fits their interest and get involved with charity organizations that appeal to them.
In addition, there are special guidelines outlined at the end of this policy for Emergency Services, Blood and Bone Marrow Donorship and Disaster Service Volunteer with the American Red Cross. A Volunteer Database exists to highlight the many community service opportunities available.
