Policies and procedures determine the actions and activities that occur on a daily basis in an organization. Policy documents outline organization-wide values, boundaries and considerations for decision making.  Procedure documents provide specific steps for enacting policies, and help ensure standard methods are used by all staff and volunteers.
Sample policy and procedure language and templates are provided in this Online Library for reference purposes only, to assist those interested in developing policies and procedures which describe the unique circumstances and operations of their program.
