Each year, we train hundreds of volunteers to serve at our VITA tax sites in PA and NJ. To meet the demand and ensure we are able to offer training that accommodate our volunteers’ busy schedules, we try to offer as many training opportunities as possible.

We will be offering training opportunities for the 2019-2020 tax season from November through January–please stay tuned for more info. If you haven’t already, please create an account on our volunteer portal.

Self-Certification & Refresher Resources

Are you a returning volunteer or an experienced tax professional?
You can use IRS resources to self-certify as a VITA volunteer without the need to attend one of our trainings. Important Note: The IRS usually updates its resources on Link&Learn by November 15. Please be sure the resources you are accessing have been updated for the coming tax year.
