Volunteer Resources

Additional Resources

The Volunteer Substitute system uses the web-based program TeamUp, which hosts all of Audio-Reader's volunteer assignment schedules. TeamUp gives volunteers access to a list of the substitutes needed for the next month, the filled assignments AND instructions for assignments. If you need a sub you must contact a staff member – you CANNOT submit substitute requests through TeamUp.

How to use TeamUp

  1. Go to: https://teamup.com/ksc78cc0d4b844eae1?showAgendaDateRange=month&date=today&view=a
  2. Bookmark this page on your computer.
  3. Purple assignments need a sub, green assignments have been filled.
  4. Click on the assignment you want to sub for, and then click on the blue "sign up" button on the right hand side of the box. Fill in your name and email address - and you are done! 
  5. Instructions for each assignment are in the “description” section.
  6. The assignment will not switch from purple to green until a staff member reviews the signup.
