2.       I understand that I do not have a formal work appointment for the agreed upon services.  I understand that CCE shall have the right to suspend or release me as a volunteer at any time and that I also have the right to terminate this agreement unless I am committing my volunteer time in exchange for education.

5.       CCE agrees to provide the orientation, training, supervision and support necessary for my successful fulfillment of responsibilities.
