Community Action Duluth Notebook

In 2013, Community Action Duluth helped 1,564 families claim over $3 million in refunds. There are still plenty of opportunities to volunteer. You can greet and interview clients or work one-on-one to prepare returns.

Community Action Duluth will hold four general volunteer orientation sessions over the next two weeks and training for preparers starts on Wednesday, January 8. You can learn about volunteering by watching the new tax site video below. Contact Tesha Dickinson at 218.726.1665 to sign up.


GED Completion Success

Why are (L-R) KeAnna Williams, Susie Green and Joanne Morris smiling? They just got their GED with the help of Community Action Duluth’s 12-week completion program.

Community Action Duluth started this program to help participants finish up their certificates before the testing requirements and format change in the new year. Five students completed their GED so far and testing is ongoing.
