“VolunteerSpot makes it easy to plan activities with other parents. Everyone signs up to do their share and that feels good!” ~Trish A., Seattle, WA
“Brilliant! Just signed up - and even for a computer idiot like me it was easy!” ~Alex, 3rd Grade Parent, Washington, D.C.
“What a timesaver! I told my school I'd be the volunteer coordinator next year all because of VolunteerSpot!” ~Sabrena, Kansas City, MO
“As our school’s only health aide, it was my responsibility to coordinate hearing and vision testing for a little over 500 students, as well as 12 parent helpers a day over a 4-day period. Volunteer Spot greatly improved the volunteer coordination aspect not only on my side, but for the parents as well who were able to quickly and easily check to see if I needed help and if a slot worked with their schedule. ” ~Tracy L, CNA, Arizona

What People Are Saying

I used Volunteer Spot for a PTA School Pictures committee I was chairing. It was a great way to gather volunteers. (It was) much less time consuming than how we usually do it. Our PTA president has asked us all to use Volunteer Spot this year for recruiting our volunteers.
