A volunteer's journey

From learning about our program to celebrating your successes, this is what it looks like to volunteer with Tax Help Colorado.

Attend a one-hour orientation where you’ll learn about volunteer roles, training schedules, and the benefits of volunteering. *All volunteers who are new to Tax Help Colorado are required to attend an orientation.

  • New Tax Preparers: Attend three four-hour, in-person trainings and complete independent readings, optional practice assignments, and an open-book IRS certification. Total training time: 12 hours + 5-10 hours for reading and certification.
  • New Greeters & Translators: Attend one two-hour, in-person training. Total training time: 2 hours.
  • Returning Tax-Certified Volunteers: Attend one three-hour refresher training and complete current year certification exam independently. Total training time: 3 hours. *Optional: Returning volunteers may attend new volunteer trainings if they wish.
  • Tax-Certified Volunteers & Greeters: Volunteer 25 hours during tax season (January 25 – May 1)
  • Translators: Volunteer 15 hours during tax season (January 25 – May 1)

In addition to the satisfaction of knowing you are doing something truly valuable for your community, volunteers who meet their hours requirement will be invited to an end-of-season celebration that brings together the community of volunteers. Previous events include a Colorado Rockies game and a reception at the Wynkoop Brewery pool hall.
