Hi friends! It's Linda from Around the Kampfire! I thought I'd
share the easiest way I've found to schedule and organize
my parent volunteers!
I discovered this free site a couple of years ago and have used it for everything from scheduling classroom volunteers and field trip chaperones to donating items for special projects and events. I even use it to schedule my parent/ teacher conferences! It's that easy!
Here's a little tutorial on how VolunteerSpot works: Go to www.volunteerspot.com
and create a free account.
From there, you click on Create New Activity.
Choose the type of activity you'd like to plan. For one time events
I choose Single Day for monthly volunteering I choose Multiple Days.
Name your activity and enter all the details.
Next, click on a date to plan it!
Enter the email addresses of those you wish to invite,
include a message and INVITE!
You can view and edit the activities you've got planned...
Then print a report of who is scheduled and when!
This part is especially helpful for parent/teacher conferences!
And here's the best part.....parents receive an email reminder the day before!
That alone saves me a ton of time!
Hop on over to my home blog, Around the Kampfire, to see
how I make the most of my volunteers' time once they arrive!
