Hennepin County volunteer manual
Message from Hennepin County Administrator
On behalf of the Board of Commissioners and employees, welcome to Hennepin County. I want to thank you for your willingness to serve as a volunteer.
Last year over 3,000 volunteers served in a variety of assignments. Volunteers help the county achieve its mission to enhance the health, safety and quality of life of our residents and communities in a respectful, efficient and fiscally responsible way.
The Hennepin County Volunteer Manual contains general policies and procedures that set standards and expectations for volunteers in all county departments. During your onboarding you will also learn about additional policies and procedures specific to the department in which you are serving.
We appreciate that you have chosen Hennepin County as a place where you want to volunteer your time. Your commitment is valuable to us and all of the residents of the county. With your help, we can make a difference in the lives of the many people we serve.
— David J. Hough, County Administrator
