- Simply choose ONE of the above shifts that you can do on a weekly basis! If you can do multiple (or all) shifts, that's great but not required.
ROLES / LANGUAGES NEEDED: We are looking for volunteer tax preparers, greeters / intake specialists, translators, and a savings champion (who would be in charge of helping taxpayers sign up for the savings raffle)! We especially need volunteers who can speak Spanish. This is NOT a requirement to volunteer at this site, but the majority of our clients speak Spanish.

SITE COORDINATOR / LEADER: Gabriela Berumen.
NOTE ABOUT SHIFT ABSENCES: If you need to miss a couple of our shifts (due to pre-planned vacations, family obligations, work, sick), that is okay! Just be sure to let us know in advance since our entire staff is made up of volunteers and we need to make sure we have enough coverage.
About Building Skills Partnership
Building Skills Partnership (BSP) is a statewide non-profit whose mission is to improve the quality of life of building service workers and their families across the state of California by providing access to education, workplace development opportunities, and much more! Through our Financial Capability program, we offer financial capability classes, community workshops, financial coaching, and free tax preparation services (VITA). Building Skills Partnership has been participating in the local Earn It! Keep It! Save It! tax coalition for 4+ years! We are expanding tax prep services to Alameda and looking for volunteers to help with intake of tax documents, to be prepared later. Specialized training for intake will be provided. We look forward to having you join us as we work to help more local community members with free tax preparation!
