Centerstone’s Volunteer Program Philosophy
Centerstone’s volunteer program provides rewarding, structured and supportive opportunities to those who desire to help people move out of poverty. Our program enables people to connect and contribute to the community by fostering mutually beneficial volunteer relationships based on shared expectations. We are respectful of volunteers’ time and commitment and acknowledge their contributions.
Volunteer with Us
Centerstone recently concluded the United Way of King County-sponsored Volunteer Impact Program. With the help of a team of consultants, we restructured our volunteer program to provide our volunteers with an even more meaningful experience. We are expanding our current volunteer positions so our volunteers can contribute their expertise in a variety of capacities, including tax preparation, photography, translation services, case management, and more. We value our volunteers’ skills and look forward to hearing ideas on how to provide our clients with the very best service.
Tax Prep Assistant. Do you have an interest in tax prep and/or a background in accounting or similar field? Income-qualifying individuals and families are eligible to receive free tax assistance and filing. We need your help to assist low income families in our community! Centerstone has partnered with United Way to become a host site for United Way’s Free Tax Prep Campaign.
The Tax Prep Assistant will ensure that individuals (by appointment) have all of their paperwork and that all paperwork is complete. The Tax Prep Assistant will NOT process taxes. All taxes will be processed by licensed preparers at a United Way site.
