Running a parent group doesn't have to be complicated.

You're in the right place for time-tested solutions and strategies school parent group volunteers crave.

Let's start you off on the right foot with our free guide outlining 5 costly mistakes to avoid.

Welcome Amazing PTO/PTA Super Star!

We’re so glad you found us because that means you have a huge desire to do great things for your kid’s school community.  And questions.  Probably lots of them!

Like how to be the best volunteer…
And how to be the run a successful group…
And most importantly, how to not have it all take over your life!

You’re in the right place, my like-minded-friend!

Here at PTO Answers, we know all too well the challenges of trying to fit volunteer time to an already packed schedule full of responsibilities and you need more than just great resources (which we have).  You also need a strong support system (we have that too).

Just like all smart volunteers, simple guidance is a blessing because life is complex and you should never have to apologize for sometimes having an unpredictable schedule.

You can become a really successful (and confident) leader in your PTO / PTA without it turning into another job or everything becoming completely overwhelming… you just have to know how and we’re going to show you how easy it is!

I’ll be your guide… so let me introduce myself.

Hi, I’m Christina, certified PTO Nerd!

I remember when I first started out as a PTA leader… it was overwhelming and exciting all at the same time.  I was nervous I’d made a mistake by stepping up, and terrified I was in over my head.

But over the past decade plus of experience as 5 time President to Room Parent and everything in between, I’ve learned hard lessons from missteps and enjoyed plenty of wins too!

PTO Answers started because there wasn’t enough realistic guidance or even clear answers to lead PTA/PTO volunteers to success while avoiding embarrassing and costly mistakes.  I knew there was an easier way.  Giving back to your community should be fun and rewarding… not a hassle or headache inducing!
