VolunteerSpotLogo-283x80Our goal is to give The Nutmeg Ballet parents the opportunity to volunteer for any Parent Network activities, no matter where we are or how busy our lives can be. We are using VolunteerSpot for the second consecutive year as we found it to be a very successful tool. VolunteerSpot is an easy online calendar sign up and reminder tool used to schedule and coordinate volunteers for activities and projects. You never need to register on VolunteerSpot; you simply provide your email address so that you may receive your personal invitations to sign up. Won’t you join us?
