Tax Associate Intern - Fall 2020/Spring 2021
Every year, the Campaign for Working Families, Inc. recruits, trains, and manages hundreds of volunteers
and interns who staff free tax sites across Southeastern PA and South Jersey. In 2020, in response to the
COVID pandemic, CWF launched a virtual tax prep program and instituted a drop-off method at select tax
sites, which enabled us to provide over 18,000 taxpayers with access to important tax credits through free
tax preparation, resource building and asset development services.
For this upcoming tax season, CWF is seeking highly motivated and tech-savvy individuals to fill our
