Quick and Easy Solutions for Parent Volunteer Coordination
VolunteerSpot is super easy to use - we know that, and you know that - most parents get their first email invitation from VolunteerSpot and in minutes, are signed up to help! (We like to say, "If you can shop online, you can use VolunteerSpot.") With anything new involving technology, it's nice to provide a little extra support and information for those parent and volunteers who may be on the tech-timid side.
We’ve gathered these sample letters as best practices for introducing VolunteerSpot to your parent community. We also have this quick video tour available about How to Sign up on VolunteerSpot. Share it with new parent groups, embed it on your school volunteer page, or add this link in a newsletter: http://vols.pt/HowToSignUp
Thanks for using VolunteerSpot and Happy Back-to-School!
