No need to worry! VolunteerSpot’s got you covered! All volunteer hours are now tracked in VolunteerSpot so NO SEPARATE LINK NEEDED! VolunteerSpot is also used for tracking tasks worked at a DSA PTSA event as long as you sign up to work an event thru VolunteerSpot! It’s not just for scheduling anymore.

DO DONATIONS GET CREDITED? YES! Sign up through VolunteerSpot to bring an item and get credited 1 hour for every $5 increment you spend. You will have 2 weeks to email the amount spent for the item to the Volunteer Coordinator atdsa.ptsa.volunteers@gmail.com. Don’t delay! After the 2 weeks following the event, you will no longer be able to claim those donations for hours. No receipt attachment necessary.

HOW DO I TRACK MY VOLUNTEER HOURS? Be sure to keep track of your VolunteerSpot hours worked via confirmation from VolunteerSpot. VolunteerSpot sends an automatic reply with your volunteer assignment. Save your confirmation assignment for tracking. If you are a NO SHOW or DO NOT work your assignment then you will not receive credit. You should always go into the VolunteerSpot link to cancel your assignment prior to the day of the event or as soon as you know that you cannot fulfill your commitment.

Donation hours will also be confirmed via email from the DSA Volunteer Coordinator and should be treated the same as volunteer hours.
