    Volunteer Conduct and Service

    As an unpaid volunteer for Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts (“KCPA”), I agree to abide by the policies and procedures set in place by KCPA. I understand that all KCPA volunteer service is at the sole discretion of KCPA, who may at any time, for whatever reason, terminate the volunteer relationship.

    I understand that I am expected to report any incident, action or circumstance that may have a potential adverse effect on safety, security or operations at KCPA or its events.

    Release and Consideration

    I understand that I will be volunteering at my own risk and assume full and complete responsibility for any personal injury sustained or caused by me during my participation as a volunteer. In addition, I hereby release, hold harmless and covenant not to file suit against KCPA and Released Parties for any such injuries.

    “Released Parties” refers to KCPA, and any of its affiliates, agents, employees, independent contractors, officers, directors, members, managers, volunteers, insurers, attorneys, heirs, predecessors, successors, administrators, assigns, and any other person or entity in any way associated with KCPA.


    I understand and acknowledge that during the performance of this contract, I may learn or receive confidential KCPA or third party information. I agree that I will not disclose or permit to be disclosed any such confidential information, and that I will not appropriate or in any fashion replicate any confidential information without the prior written consent of KCPA.


    The information in this application is true to the best of my knowledge and I give KCPA permission to verify it. I understand that any misstatement or omission may result in rejection of my application or termination of my volunteer status. I authorize the persons or organizations referenced in this application to give KCPA any and all information concerning my previous employment or volunteer work.

    I understand that I will be subject to a background check, including a criminal records check. This information will be used to determine eligibility for a volunteer position and/or grounds for removal as a volunteer. I hereby give my permission for KCPA or its designee to obtain information relating to my employment, volunteer and criminal history. I also understand that as long as I remain a volunteer, I authorize KCPA or its designee to repeat this background and/or criminal history records check at any time.

    Media/Photograph Release

    I understand that my participation with KCPA may be photographed and promoted by KCPA, or any other organization or individuals involved with the creation or promotion of KCPA. I hereby give permission to Released Parties to use my name and likeness for any such promotion of KCPA.
