Hostility in the Girl Scout Environment
Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan strictly prohibits hostility in any form against not only another operational volunteer but also girl members, staff members, visitors, and anyone else having some involvement with the council. Hostility under this policy is considered to include physical violence as well as harassment, intimidation, stalking, coercion, display of weapons, threats, and talking or joking about hostility whether in person or through some other means of communications such as writing, telephone, voice mail, or electronic mail. This policy applies to all operational volunteers at all facilities occupied by Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan or off premises if involved in activities for Girl Scouts Heart of Michigan.
If it is determined that an operational volunteer has violated this policy, immediate and appropriate disciplinary action will be taken, up to and including release and the involvement of appropriate law enforcement authorities, as needed. Furthermore, retaliation against anyone who has reported a possible or actual violation of this policy is strictly prohibited and, if it occurs, will be grounds for disciplinary action, up to and including release.
