Volunteer

“Volunteering is at the very core of being a human. No one has made it through life without someone else’s help.”

 — Heather French Henry

 

Giving your time and talent is something of tremendous value. We appreciate – beyond any sentiment we could possibly express – every minute and every hour you give to us. Our need for volunteers varies, so we recommend you contact a member of our staff to see about current opportunities.

Volunteer Opportunities

Duluth Stream Corps

We work from 7 am to 3:30 pm on weekdays and often welcome volunteers when planting. Bring closed toed shoes, gloves, water, and a willingness to learn. Staff will happily answer any questions you may have like; why we are planting here, why these types of trees and bushes are being planted, or why it is so important to limit the spread of invasive species? Please come ready to plant and learn.

*Some dates may not work out as our project may not be suitable for volunteer help.

GED Tutors

Getting a GED certificate can open the door to a better job, promotions or even a higher education. We are looking for GED tutors to connect with participants and help them master GED essentials—math, grammar, reading comprehension. You can tutor in the area where you are strongest.

Sessions run Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 5–7 p.m.

Contact us for more information at 218-726-1665 or info@communityactionduluth.org.

Free Tax Site

Unfortunately it's too late to volunteer in 2021, but reach out in the fall to volunteer in 2022.  Keep reading to learn more about volunteering in the future!

 

Volunteers helped 1,525 families claim almost $2.9 million in refunds last year. Our clients generally have little access to affordable, professional tax preparation. One hour of your time can put an average of $1,895 in the pockets of low- and moderate-income families and individuals.

 

Join us at the Free Tax Site where you’ll meet some great people and we’ll provide all the training you need.  Learn more about volunteering and how to apply to help!
