4 Great Reasons to Volunteer

Each year, 211 partners with AARP to set free Tax-Aide appointments for community members with low and middle income. Scheduling hundreds of tax appointments between January and April requires a great group of dedicated volunteers. Here are four reasons you might want to be one of them:

Get ‘er Done

Like all good things, tax season must come to an end. Tax appointment scheduling starts in early January and ends April 17th. Get all of your volunteering done in the cold and rainy months and feel great about hitting the road when the sun comes out.

Meet New Friends

We like to think we have a pretty great team of volunteers and staff around here. A trip to the watercooler might put you in the path of a rancher, a pilot, a winery owner, a singer who does a killer Bowie impression, an art historian, and many, many dog lovers. If you love talking to people, this job is for you.

Keep Your Skills Sharp

We answer calls and schedule appointments using web-based applications. If you can shop online, you can answer a 211 call. This is a great opportunity to keep up those skills and learn a few more along the way.

Help Your Community Connect

Each year, 211 answers over 10,000 calls from Nevada County residents like yourself. 211 is a quick, easy starting point to connect to community resources for food, shelter, transportation, legal assistance, and more. Your work as a volunteer supports local people in living healthy, independent lives.

If any (or all) of these reasons appeal to you, get in touch. Check out our Opportunities page for more information or download an application here.
