United Way of the Capital Area has two volunteer opportunities.
1.Volunteer as an income tax preparer and help working families save money!
We invite you to help low- to middle-income working families save hundreds of dollars. When you serve as a volunteer tax preparer through our VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program you become part of a small army of people who, last year, brought $4.9 million back into our community through tax refunds and credits by preparing taxes for more than 2,500 working families.

2. Volunteer as a reader, tutor or mentor for a student in our community!
This year, United Way of the Capital Area joins other United Ways across the country to call for 1 million volunteer readers, tutors, and mentors. If you like to work with children of all ages–from kindergarten to teenagers–we need you! It’s easy to get involved.
READ–Become a BOOK BUDDY and read to a child once a week. Volunteer to read to children during our SUMMER READING WORKSHOPS.
TUTOR–United Way hosts several tutoring sessions throughout the school year. Even if you just come to help organize, we could use your help.
MENTOR–Professionals are invited to speak to groups of students to inspire and enlighten them to career possibilities in their futures.
