2024 West Sacramento Home Run Intern Participation Agreement

The Workplace

An internship is a privilege. West Sacramento businesses and other local employers are volunteering to provide you with an opportunity to gain work experience and learn about their industry and their organization. Because interns will be actively involved in the functioning of a business or agency, all interns must agree to the following expectations:

  • I will work only when and where assigned.

  • I will complete the tasks assigned to me to the best of my ability. If I need help or guidance, I will ask for it.

  • I will dress appropriately, following the dress code of my worksite.

  • Absences, late arrivals and personal appointments that conflict with my work schedule must be cleared by my supervisor. Excessive absences or tardiness may result in my dismissal from the internship.

  • I will communicate with my supervisor about any problems promptly, before they become major issues. Examples include workplace conflicts, inability to complete assigned tasks, etc.

  • If I have problems that I do not feel comfortable discussing with my supervisor, I will contact Home Run staff.

  • I will maintain a positive attitude, take initiative and ask questions when necessary.

  • I will not smoke, drink alcohol or use any illegal drugs or cannabis at the worksite, nor will I come to work intoxicated. Failure to meet this expectation will result in immediate termination.

  • I will accept supervision and direction graciously.

  • I will conduct myself in a dignified, courteous, and considerate manner.

  • I will always knock on closed doors before entering.

  • I will not bring friends to the worksite.

  • I will not use my cell phone while working.

  • I will not use company phones or computers for personal communication.

  • I will avoid gossiping or discussing controversial issues with coworkers.

  • I will avoid actions that may hurt myself or others or cause property damage.


Weekly Training

​While an internship is similar to a regular job, it is also a learning opportunity. The Home Run internship program includes work skills training once a week. This training is just as important as the experience you get at your work site, and you should take it just as seriously. All interns must agree to the following expectations:

  • I will participate in all required Home Run training events. If I am unable to attend one of these events, I will notify Home Run staff in advance. If I have more than two unexcused absences from a Home Run training event, my internship will be terminated.

  • I will demonstrate a positive attitude during all training events, fully participate in all training 
    activities, and complete all individual and group assignments. I understand that if I consistently 
    demonstrate a poor attitude, do not participate fully, or do not complete my assignments, 
    I may be removed from the internship program.

  • I will not use my cell phone during Home Run training events unless directed to do so by the Home Run team.

Home Run interns represent the City of West Sacramento. A positive, professional approach to your internship is essential, and clear communications and understanding will help the internship run smoothly. Enjoy, learn, and have a good summer!

I understand and agree to adhere to the expectations described above.
