Way too many school group leaders are struggling to get enough volunteers, especially for leadership positions. They're burning themselves out trying to fill the gaps, all for the sake of the kids.

That’s why I created this new class.

To share the solutions that I’ve learned from smart, dedicated PTO leaders, in my town and across the country, with other smart, dedicated PTO leaders – like you! 

Easy-to-follow, fun-to-watch video lessons

Each animated video lesson is packed with fun images to communicate how-to steps and examples in a clear, entertaining way.
