Chime In Code of Ethics

As part of Chime in, you represent a global community dedicated to making a difference in the world by acting as a role model – personally, professionally and ethically. When you have been selected and agree to be a Chime In Youth Ambassador, Mentor, Board Member, Team Leader or are a volunteer, we expect you to uphold to the following code of ethics each day…

  1. I will treat all people, no matter who or what circumstance, with respect and dignity even if I disagree with them or the situation.
  2. I am expected to “show up” and be present on as many webinars, radio shows, conference calls, etc. as often possible. Chime In understands that this will differ for each person based on his or her lifestyle, religion or school/job schedule. When I cannot show up I will communicate to the program leaders with at least 24 hours notice ahead of time.
  3. While attending a function, community service trip, media event, etc. I will maintain a professional appearance and attitude at all times.
  4. On a service trip, for safety sake, I will stick with the group (and not wander off). If the situation is appropriate for me to explore on my own, I will remain in in communication with my project leader/director as to my whereabouts.
  5. I understand that alcohol is available in many countries to adults 18 and older. As a team member of Chime In, I am allowed to enjoy an alcoholic beverage, if of age in that country. At any point, if I appear out of control or not making good decisions, I will be asked to stop consuming alcohol and agree to meeting with management or team leaders about my behavior. During that meeting I may be placed “on probation*” or asked to leave the event or community service trip.
  6. I understand that during community service trips it is my responsibility to take care of my personal well being to ensure I am a productive member of the team. This includes proper sleep, healthy eating, hydration, being prepared for weather such as over exposure to sun or wet conditions as well as not putting oneself in a dangerous, compromising, or sexual situation.
  7. I understand that communication is of the upmost importance for the well being of the team and the efficiency of our work. To this end, I promise to will actively engage in “non-violent communication” (i.e. honesty and integrity) to the best of my ability.
  8. I understand that it is my duty to fulfill the responsibilities that I have been assigned and committed to. If for whatever reason I cannot fulfill my responsibilities I will communicate directly with the project leader/ director in order to find a healthy and productive solution.
  9. When I share publicly (via media or in person in groups) I will keep my comments succinct and to the point, and be mindful of the time parameters set forth by the venue.
  10. I will do my best to contribute to a positive and healthy work environment, celebrating the positive qualities of my colleagues and creating a platform for everyone to shine and feel supported (youth ambassadors and administration alike).
