“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 always welcome volunteers when planting. What to 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 more about our ecosystems in Duluth.

*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

Free Tax Site

We are always looking for volunteers to work at our tax site. 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!

There are many opportunities to help, including:

  • Tax return preparation.

  • Greeting customers, signing them in and taking them through a complete intake process.

  • Assisting in assembling a completed tax return and providing clients with their own hard copies.
