Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all our guests, staff, and volunteers. BNHV therefore reserves the right to perform background criminal checks on all volunteers whose roles will place them in close contact with vulnerable members of the community. The results of these checks will be kept confidential. BNHV reserves the right to decline to work with volunteer candidates according to internal policies, and will not discriminate based on age, race, religion, disability, national origin, genetic information, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or pregnancy.   BNHV reserves the right to terminate the volunteer relationship according to internal policies. All volunteers will receive a copy of the Volunteer Handbook and orientation upon arriving at BNHV, and by accepting these they agree to abide by the rules of conduct found therein.
