Volunteer Information AND Resources

Use your comfort with numbers to change lives. Both theirs and yours.

As a volunteer, you have a unique opportunity to serve members of underserved communities in Detroit and southeast Michigan by coaching them toward financial security. Your time and unique talents with numbers can make a permanent, positive impact in the lives of local people. You can witness the newfound assurance of our clients as they gain financial stability. Best of all, the clients you work with are members of your neighborhood. Volunteering with us helps you establish a meaningful connection by watching your efforts pay off first-hand. Both for our clients and yours as a volunteer. 

To help those who may not be as privileged as I have been and to see that they are getting the best possible refund is an honor. I am truly grateful to have the opportunity to reach out to so many people in need of getting a reliable and fair tax return. (As a college student) Preparing taxes gives me the ability to grow as an accounting expert and learn real-world experience. This experience has tremendously humbled myself and helped me grow as a person.

Volunteering with Accounting Aid Society has many benefits that may not be so obvious . . . We are able to help people and give back to our community, which in itself is wonderful. It’s actually fun to meet with people who are so appreciative of our time. Another is that we receive actual tax experience. And, since I’ve added this experience to my resume, I have many more companies interested in interviewing me. I have always liked volunteering for the feeling of giving unconditionally. That feeling cannot be bought by a paycheck or anything else.
