Volunteer Opportunities with VITA!

Since CASH is about more than just preparing tax returns, there are a variety of ways to participate as a volunteer during tax season. No experience is necessary and all training is provided, along with on-site support.  Here’s how you can help as a volunteer as a part of our free tax prep program (VITA):


The success of CASH is due to the generous dedication of CASH volunteers. Each year, hundreds of CASH volunteers team up to help Monroe County’s low‑income working families. CASH volunteers come from every part of the community – a great representation of our area’s diversity, and our willingness to work together for a great cause.


Greet clients, help them with paperwork, schedule appointments, and help them navigate through the CASH site.  Your warm welcome will ease the anxiety of new CASH clients, and your organizational skills will keep things running smoothly for everybody. (2hr training)


Help clients get organized to see the Tax Preparer, chat with them about their financial challenges, and provide information about resources they can use.  Once you experience the thrill of helping somebody discover a life-changing opportunity, you’ll be hooked! (4hr training)


Prepare Federal and NY State income tax returns, with easy-to- use software provided by the IRS.  It’s always fun to tell somebody they’re coming into money, and the typical CASH client receives a payment of $2,000. (20hr IRS certification training) Are you interested in an Internship, CO-OP, Service Learning or volunteer opportunity?

Are you interested in an Internship, CO-OP, Service Learning or Volunteer opportunity?

CASH partners with local colleges and universities to offer unpaid Internship, CO-OP, Service Learning and Volunteer opportunities to students in a variety of majors and degree programs. When filling out a volunteer interest form, write “Internship, CO-OP, or Service Learning.”

You don’t have any experience?

Don’t worry! CASH provides detailed classroom training to prepare you for your volunteer role, including on-the- job training during your first week at the site.
We’ll make sure that you are completely qualified and comfortable in your job before expecting you to fly solo. And it doesn’t stop there. During every shift,
patient and knowledgeable veterans are always on hand to answer your questions and help you.
