Students, family & colleagues know about CAW,

you've started telling folks outside of your building about it,

So now is the time to firm up your plans for the week, confirm your volunteer strategy, and  prepare a press release. If you missed the Site Coordinator training webinar or want to catch up on what your colleagues' questions were, you can find all that here:
To keep on track for a successful CAW event, the following steps are most critical.
You've told us which days you plan to host your event -- that's great! If you haven't already done so, be sure to set a clear schedule with times & locations for all your activities and get that out to school staff ASAP.
Haven't told us when your event is yet? Fill out the pre-event information survey today!
We've been receiving requests for info about which sites need help. Posting your needs on VolunteerSpot is the best way for us to know where to direct these potential volunteers.
Make sure you have a plan for volunteer recruitment and management. We recommend VolunteerSpot, and we've purchased a premium account that you can link to from your own free account. Follow the step-by-step tutorial to get all set up. Visit the Volunteer Page of the CAW website & click on the VolunteerSpot button to see how the group page looks. (Kudos to Milwaukie, Sam Barlow, and Gresham High Schools for getting their events listed!)
It's important to share the good work you're doing beyond the walls of your building. We'll be telling the statewide story, and we want you to share your own local story. Use our Press Release Template to inform your local media of your plans.
Kudos to Vicky Roller at Taft 7-12 for garnering the first press of 2014 CAW season (note the call for volunteers)!
Did you know that you have over 100 colleagues around the state who are planning CAW events? You all have some FANTASTIC ideas! We share as many of them as come our way, so please share your ideas!
Look for these symbols in the Coordinator Handbook for tips, tricks, and tried-and-true good practices.
