What is the dress code for volunteers?

In general, clothing should be modest, neat, well-fitting and inoffensive. Due to the nature of outdoor work, community service volunteers may wear moderately worn clothing. The Director shall be the final judge as to the appropriateness, neatness, and cleanliness of the apparel, or whether or not the apparel is disruptive, distracting, unsafe, or in violation of the dress code. Exceptions may be granted based on the work being performed.

  • Only long pants are permitted. Shorts or capris may not be worn.
  • Shirts must have sleeves. No tank tops or spaghetti straps may be worn.
  • Only closed-toe shoes may be worn. Footwear such as sandals, flip-flops or Crocs are not permitted.
  • Clothing or ornamentation displaying suggestive or political phrases, designs, markings or profanities are prohibited.
