Tax Associate Intern: Fall 2021/Spring 2022

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 response to the COVID

taxpayers safely and ensure they have 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
multiple Tax Associate intern positions, both for our virtual and in-person tax prep programs. All students,
