PARENT VOLUNTEER SIGN UP SHEET TEMPLATE
Ask EVERYONE to do SOMETHING and appreciate EVERYTHING
When you ask everyone to do something and truly appreciate all help, you will grow your base of school parent volunteers.
Ask everyone — Moms and Dads, “stay-at-home” parents and those who “work outside the home,” busy people and busy people (because, let’s be real, everyone’s busy juggling important priorities) — to commit to doing at least one small volunteer task. Assure parents that even just doing the minimum will help and be appreciated and they won’t be pressured to give more.
Many parents will do more. By starting with a small request, though, a larger number of parents will commit to helping. Offering small volunteer opportunities (even ones as small as bringing cups to an event) also shows parents that helping the kids takes a big group effort. It says that all help is welcome and even small contributions are appreciated and add up to good things for the kids.
Volunteering often leads to more volunteering, including bigger jobs. So, getting more parents started, even with small tasks, grows your base of helpers and leaders.
