Engaging our community to end poverty

Volunteer

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.

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. (We are in need of math tutors right now.)

Sessions run Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 4:45–7p.m.

To learn more about becoming a GED volunteer, please contact us at 218.726.1665 ext. 215 or by email at madison@communityactionduluth.org.  We’d love to have you join us!

Tax Site Volunteers Needed

A big volunteer opportunity at Community Action Duluth is being part of our Free Tax Site team. 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.

79 percent of our families have income under 200% of federal poverty guidelines. 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.
