    A "volunteer" position with "requirements"? What, pray tell, is the punishment for failing to fulfill the minimum requirement of a job without pay?

    The Department of Labor would be very interested in hearing about this arrangement.

    That's not unheard of. I volunteered at a literacy center and there was a minimum time you could volunteer. I've also volunteered at several events where there has been a "you must work this many days and this many hours a day" in order to sign up.

    I realize the "job" in the OP is different, but, yeah, many agencies and events that rely on volunteers have a minimum of hours you must serve.

    Just wanted to clarify that.

  5. Does it count for my community service hours if I volunteer?

    Ask your principal or parole officer.
