How to Become a CWF Volunteer

Volunteer Shift Sign Up

Training season is fast approaching!

In November and December, we will conduct preseason trainings in Philadelphia for our Tax Associate interns and Returning Volunteers who want to be Advanced certified. In January, we will conduct our regular season trainings in Philadelphia, Montco and Southern New Jersey (both Basic and Advanced). CWF tax sites open the 3rd week of January in PA, and the first week of February in NJ. Volunteer shifts will be posted on our portal at least one week prior to when our tax sites open. Once scheduled, you will be able to sign up for these trainings on our volunteer portal, VolunteerHub

“Those who can, do. Those who can do more become a CWFI volunteer.”

About Volunteering

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) programs have served as an invaluable financial resource for low-to-moderate income taxpayers in communities across the country for over 45 years. With as little as eight hours of training, VITA volunteers are able to uniquely help break the cycle of generational poverty by assisting taxpayers build savings, open bank accounts, review their credit score, receive financial coaching and more. Each year, VITA volunteers put billions of dollars back in the pockets of low-income taxpayers nationwide, and in so doing, facilitate sustainable community reinvestment and development. Just last year, CWFI’s 850+ volunteers at 38 tax sites helped bring in over $46.5 million in tax refunds to our region.
