United Way is making a better Nashville by partnering to create strategic, scalable solutions focused on education, financial stability and health. But we can’t do it alone. We need the heads, hands and hearts of committed people like you to help us tackle the problems facing our community. We provide easy access to a wide range of volunteer opportunities. Whether you want to volunteer with your family, coworkers or on your own, we can help you find the opportunity right for you.
VITA stands for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance. Over 250 IRS-certified volunteers prepare tax returns for free for individuals & families who qualify based on income. Each year, United Way offers free tax prep at approximately 40 locations across Middle Tennessee. We rely on volunteers for positions ranging from site greeters to tax prep. No experience necessary, we'll train you!
