Karen Bantuveris

Founder & CEO of VolunteerSpot (

Passionate about improving parent participation at school and fueled by my own frustration with reply-all email and difficulty getting on the schedule to help in my daughter's kindergarten class, I founded in 2009. Frequent speaker on the topics of Boosting Parent Participation in Schools and Using Social Media for Social Good. Recent speaking engagements include National and State PTA conferences, SXSW Interactive, and Parenting Magazine's Mom Congress.
