Want to hear more about what we do in cooperation with our community partners throughout the year?
Volunteers are the backbone of many of the non-profits in the Keys.

Toward the end of each year we solicit volunteers to work with our VITA free tax preparation program.
During tax season, volunteers will work as IRS-certified volunteer tax preparers, with oversight and assistance from the VITA Program Coordinator. Volunteers help fellow residents maximize their tax return so they are better able to provide for their families, thereby making our community more affordable. Bilingual volunteers are especially appreciated.
No tax experience is necessary, just a willingness to learn, grow and serve. After attending a free, remote training and passing the online certification, volunteers remotely assist taxpayers prepare and file their taxes, January – April, using the cloud based IRS software, TaxSlayer, and videoconferencing with clients. Email our program coordinator if you are interested in being a VITA volunteer.
