Volunteer Spot – Let this Online Calendar – Organize Your Classroom Volunteers or MeetingsPosted: October 18, 2011 | |
Lately I have been receiving e-mail concerning organizing groups for your classroom. The groups might include: parent classroom helpers, PTA, PTO, clubs, teams, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, etc. Since organizing this type of group is always a challenge, I am re-posting a site called Volunteer Spot which makes this process very easy. If you have a group to organize give it a try!
As teachers, coaches or administrators, we are constantly organizing something! And many of the items that we need to organize include parents or students who probably do not have district e-mail addresses. Also it is a pain to collect parent or student e-mail addresses. Let VolunteerSpot do it for you!
Problem solved, VolunteerSpot
This FREE website, there goes that free word again, allows you to use an online calendar to organize your event and have individuals sign up for your event.
What is an event? Well it might be a parent meeting, class activity where you need parent help, a celebration where people need to sign up to bring different things at a particular time, a club meeting, a sports practice, etc. You name it and VolunteerSpot can help you organize it.
Organizing an event is really easy; just follow the event wizard steps.
Event Calendar – Sign up for the time you want to volunteer.
I have set up a CR Practice Calendar so you can try it. Go ahead and sign up for one of the two dates in August. Remember this is a Practice Calendar, Practice! And we all know that you don’t have to show up for Practice, as one of our favorite 76’s would say!
You can put this URL link on your web page to indicate to parents, students, community members, etc. that you are using VolunteerSpot for the event sign up.
Here is an example with a live link to my event. Try it and sign-up for one of the days of my event in August.
