Taking on a volunteer leadership role at school, church, or to support a nonprofit is often more fun (and less intimidating) when you can share the responsibility. At VolunteerSpot, we've made it easy to add Assistant Organizer(s) to your online sign up sheet -- Please click here to see how (in our Help System).
Here are some examples of how our volunteer leaders are finding our Assistant Organizer feature useful:
- Co-chairs of a charity walk both access the volunteer roster and schedule of needs on walk-day.
- A volunteer coordinator for Habitat sets up a schedule of needs for a house build and shares the schedule with the workplace volunteer team captain. The team captain then invites coworkers to sign up to staff the build.
- A room mom creates a classroom helper schedule for the month and the teacher logs-in to print a daily schedule.
- A fall carnival chair creates a listing of carnival booth volunteer needs for each class, and shares it with each room parent. The room parent then invites the class parents to sign up. Both the room parent and carnival chair can monitor the class signup sheet to ensure shifts are filled.
