Volunteer opportunities with United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona

Every year, United Way engages hundreds of volunteers in helping community members receive the biggest check many of them receive all year: their tax refund. Through our Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA), you can learn about taxes and work with community members one-on-one to help them file their returns for free, ensuring a complete, maximized refund and saving them hundreds on the costs of using a paid preparer or software option. If you want to be part of our team of VITA volunteers, sign up to be notified about annual orientations and trainings!

Download the Golden Volunteer app on the Apple App Store, or Google Play.

Looking for something specific? Send an email to Rachel Cheeseman, Senior Manager of Volunteer Engagement, and let her know how you're looking to get involved with your community.
