Orange County United Way Free Tax Prep VISTA
There’s an amazing feeling that comes from helping others. The more we unite community resources to support Orange County United Way’s Fund, Collaborate, and Educate (FACE) 2024 goals, the closer we come to ensuring that everyone in Orange County has access to a quality education, a sustainable income, good health and stable housing. As an AmeriCorps VISTA, you have the power to make a big impact in the lives of others in our local community. VISTA will build the capacity and expand the Orange County Free Tax Prep campaign. This program strives to enhance financial stability for low-income residents by providing free tax preparation services, education around Earned Income Tax Credits and the importance of saving. Orange County United Way employee culture is one of service, kindness, and resourcefulness. This is a great opportunity for someone to join a small collaborative, supportive team, working intelligently, individually, and diligently. A successful VISTA candidate is flexible, self-motivated, detail-oriented, and emotionally intelligent. As a result of VISTA’s efforts, OC United Way will increase the number of volunteers and free tax prep services to the target community, determine what best practices can be adopted to enhance program impact, and further expand how to leverage OC United Way resources to better achieve our goals. Together with your help, we will transform the lives of individuals and families in Orange County.
